The hall on the edge of the Helmingham estate, could be converted into a home after plans were approved in June.

The designs would see the current building converted into a living and dining area as well as a kitchen, with a new extension adding two bedrooms, a bathroom and a utility room.

The property will also benefit from two off road parking spaces.

Since the plans were given approval, the property has been listed for sale with Clark and Simpson for £150,000.
