Developer Haller Builders has applied to knock down the 1950s brick and tile bungalow, near the A1067 on the southern side of Norwich Road.
In a planning statement to North Norfolk District Council, their agents Claxton Hall say the existing 188, Norwich Road, is in need of need of “total refurbishment” and could be replaced with four 1.5-storey detached houses of “differing contemporary designs”.
“The new dwellings will be constructed in a palette of colours and materials based on a contemporary twist of the traditional Norfolk vernacular,” it says.
It adds each property would have its own parking space and space within a shared garage, along with “ample” gardens, with homes separated by fences and hedges.
A survey has concluded the site is of “low ecological value” and there are no protected species present.
