Green light awarded to Norfolk country home

The owners of the Holkham Hall estate in Norfolk have been given the go-ahead from local councillors to construct a seven-bedroom manor house within the grounds.

The three-storey country manor, which has been designed with Palladian style architecture, will be named Creake House. The grand new structure will serve as a home for the Coke family, who have a long history in the area and have resided in Holkham for four centuries.

Architects in Nantwich, Norfolk and other parts of the UK must develop building designs that are mindful of their location. Councillor Christopher Cushing, who spoke in support of the new design, stated that the submitted plans reached the highest standard required by the planning committee. He commented:

“It certainly does fit into the local environment. I can’t see anything that could be any higher than that. The amount of work and effort that is going to be pumped into the local economy to build a house of that style is considerable. I think it’s an outstanding building.”

The plans for the ground floor include two kitchens, an entrance hall, a boot room, two lobbies, a dining room, drawing room and a wine store. Along with the seven bedrooms, the upper levels will also feature a laundry room and games room. Additionally, the manor house’s grounds will include wildflower meadows, a formal garden and two ponds.

The new property was granted approval by the district council of North Norfolk and will be built off of Walsingham Road, in between Egmere and North Creake.
