Long Four Acres

Mulbarton, Norfolk


Long Four Acres is an innovative development in the heart of South Norfolk which enables people to design and create their own bespoke home with as much input into the design and build process as they desire. Since its launch to the market in June 2018, 12 plots have been reserved and those soon-to-be residents are working with their preferred architects and designers to submit their plans for detailed planning consent. 


Each plot at Long Four Acres is available to purchase with all the infrastructure works done by the developer and each plot serviced with the following utilities: 

  • Electricity 
  • Water 
  • Drainage 
  • Telecoms - Including Ultra Fast BT Fibre Optic Broadband 


The infrastructure works have now begun and the development is on course to provide purchasers with the road and the servicing before Christmas 2018, enabling them to begin building in the early part of 2019! 


Each plot runs parallel to Long Four Acres Avenue, which is currently being formed by Ovamill, a Civil Engineering Company. The plots are wide and deep, with Build Zones set far from the roadside to provide distance and privacy, enabling new residents to create a home which benefits from a large front and rear garden. 


Long Four Acres was the brainchild of landowners Karen and Kevin Keable, who, like many others, harboured an ambition to create a home that was suitable to them and matched their needs and lifestyle. With one child at university in London and another close behind, they decided to try to build a new home within the grounds of Bracon Lodge, Mulbarton, where they currently reside. Unfortunately, the land they wished to build on was five acres in size and their planning consultants, Lanpro, advised them that their plans were likely to be refused as the land was simply too large for one house. Instead, they were advised to apply for planning for 15 detached homes and offer them to the market as serviced self build plots.


They were successful thanks to their organisation, tenacity, and a little help from friends at Lanpro and BuildStore. The site already has new residents creating some exciting new house designs which are being brought to life by their preferred architects and designers, including local practices Liv Architects and NP Architects.
