Long Four Acres

Mulbarton, Norfolk


All plots are now sold or reserved. 

AWARD WINNING CUSTOM BUILD DEVELOPMENT - ‘Best Custom Build Project, 2019’ BuildIt Magazine Award

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.

Each of the fifteen plots is ready to build on, with electricity, water, sewage, and telecoms running beneath the site then diverted to the boundary of each plot. Services include Ultra High Speed Fibre Broadband from BT, which is rare for semi-rural and rural development sites, enabling new residents to work comfortably from home, stream media and connect to smart home technology.

With an average plot size of 1200sq.m (0.3 acres), each has outline planning permission which enables purchasers to create a detached home with ample space for a large front and rear garden. The freedom of design at Long Four Acres gives greater levels of flexibility in terms of design, size and specification, allowing plot buyers to design and deliver a home that complements their lifestyle and individual requirements. 

The Long Four Acres design code and plot passports ensures each home is created to a very high standard, while the development itself will be landscaped, comprising new trees and plants to soften the impact of construction, creating a place boasting fantastic architecture, design and garden space.

Custom Build Homes has supported each plot purchaser throughout the sales, design and legal process. Each purchaser has appointed their own architects and professional team to deliver their project, with some residents opting for a complete turnkey solution, whereas others have preferred to project manage the build themselves.

Custom Build Homes is delighted to see the new community form at Long Four Acres and are honoured to be involved in such a successful custom build development.

Further information



The payment process for a self or custom built home is different to the purchase of a traditional new build property – which you pay for once it is built.

As your home at Long Four Acres will be a bespoke design for you and your individual requirements, you will purchase your home at various stages of the build process. BuildStore Mortgage Services are on hand to arrange the most suitable funding option for you. As the UK’s leading self and custom build expert, they have financed over 20,000 building projects for people creating their own home. That is a lot of dreams being made!



We have assembled some of the UK's leading providers of design, planning and technical support for you to engage with, should you wish to. Each member of the Team provides something unique and we have worked with them all in the past. Whether you want to build your entire house from scratch or you want to simply design your space and instruct your home to be built for you, it is worth getting ideas for the experts, generating discussion and ultimately reaping the rewards of support from the experts!
