4 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
Owl Barn, a beautifully presented barn conversion, is delightfully positioned in the charming village of Oxborough, home to the wonderful National Trust manor house Oxburgh Hall. The barn's versatile accommodation exudes character, with exposed timbers and brickwork, an inglenook fireplace and brace and latch doors combined with modern efficiencies such as underfloor heating to create the perfect home for today's lifestyle. The property is ready for its new owner to move straight into and make it their own.
From the moment the property comes into view behind its wooden gates, there is a true sense of privacy and security, and the sweeping driveway makes for a lovely approach. The front door opens to a spacious and welcoming entrance hall with a grand turning staircase rising to the galleried first floor landing, as well as leading on to all ground floor accommodation. The kitchen/breakfast room really is the hub of the home; generously proportioned and fitted with a vast range of stylish shaker style units topped with granite worksurfaces. A central oak-topped island provides additional storage and workspace, exposed beams add character and the vaulted ceiling and French doors opening to the garden only add to the sense of light and space. Almost matching the kitchen in its generous proportions, the sitting room too has the wow factor. The impressive inglenook style fireplace makes for a stunning focal point and bi-folding doors bring the outside in, with views out over the front garden and countryside beyond. Also brimming with character, the room offers the perfectly combination of being cosy and comfortable, yet spacious and bright.
The adjacent dining room offers the ideal space for more formal entertaining, again with exposed beams and featuring delightful timber flooring, with a trio of full height windows providing interest and those lovely views over the garden and fields to the front. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study, large enough for a dedicated home office, a WC, and a fitted utility room which adjoins the kitchen.
Upstairs, the galleried landing is airy and bright, thanks to the extensive glazing to the front elevation, and gives access to the four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom is an extremely good sized room, with the benefit of a walk-in dressing room and an en-suite shower room. Just like the ground floor, the quality of the work and the character of the build are evident at every turn.
The outside space is wonderful, whilst requiring little maintenance. The rear courtyard style garden features a beautiful Indian sandstone patio, with gravelled areas and a path leading to the double garage and further gravelled parking area. To the front, a patio seating area is just off the sitting room, with the recently turfed garden offering a blank canvas and an excellent opportunity for a keen gardener to create their own oasis. Equally, if gardening isn't your idea of relaxing, the garden is already the perfect space to sit and enjoy the property's peaceful surroundings and lovely views.
OXBOROUGH Oxborough is a rural mid-Norfolk village, 17 miles from King's Lynn. It's famous for its church, St. John's, and the manor house Oxburgh Hall, ancestral home of the Bedingfeld family, now owned by the National Trust. In 1948, the tower and spire of St. Johns collapsed onto the church destroying the south side of the nave. The south chapel contains a rare undamaged terracotta tomb, which is unique in England, and evidence of the Catholicism of the Bedingfeld family. Oxburgh Hall was built in 1482 by the Bedingfield family, who still live there. It was built as castles were beginning to fall out of fashion, and the king - unusually - gave permission for castellation. The building is fortified with a moat. It is open to the public as it is now owned by the National Trust. The village has a pub named after the Bedingfield family The Bedingfield Arms. King's Lynn is a busy town with a wide range of shops. It also has hourly trains to London King's Cross via Cambridge.
