Freebridge Community Housing is handing over keys to their four new homes in Gayton next month.

The homes were opened by chief executive Tony Hall, chairman Andy Walder, director of assets and development Alex Dixon and Andrew Mowbray from building firm Smiths of Honingham on Tuesday.

Mr Hall said: “It is a sympathetic regeneration of the building and these are much more expensive to do. I get much more joy seeing old buildings brought back to life.

“It is really important we provide homes for people who desperately need them and it is also about a sense of place because we believe in supporting a better West Norfolk.

“In order for West Norfolk to be a great place for people to want to live, work and play they have to be proud of where they live.

“I feel this really enhances the village site, which was empty for a long time, and it is about making the best of the buildings which are already here rather than knocking them down and starting again.

“I am absolutely delighted by the result and I really hope we are giving people some great homes for them to live out their lives.”

The properties, which cost between £98.19 and £121.56 per week, have a living room, kitchen with dining room, a downstairs bathroom, and either one or two-bedrooms upstairs with another bathroom.

They have spacious rear back gardens and two dedicated parking spaces have been allocated for each property.

Mr Dixon said: “Projects like these always present us with a number of challenges given that we have to work around the existing framework of the old buildings.

“However we’re really pleased with what we’ve been able to achieve and think that we’ve ended up with four very special new homes in a great setting, which in turn fit right into the village as a whole.”
