The Ling, Garboldisham, Diss, Norfolk, IP22


3 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale

Clay Barn is set in a desirable location approached from a single-track country lane between the villages of North Lopham and Garboldisham.

The Ling is an area where passing traffic is just the occasional farm machine and those living along the lane. Whilst having this rural aspect, the property is not isolated as it is set in a small group of 4 houses creating its own small community.

Equally the property is not far from facilities as there is a shop and public house in the village and the bustling market town of Diss is just 8 miles away. For those looking for the quiet rural life without total isolation, Clay Barn offers a great deal.

Converted to create a very stylish property with the very essence of barn living, the design encapsulates open-plan living on the ground floor, which lets the light flood in to all areas, whilst without feeling cavernous and has a very good natural flow.

The use of traditional materials adds to the sense of a barn conversion with oak doors and a wonderful oak staircase, which blends traditional and contemporary styling seamlessly.

The kitchen has a breakfast area and a range of sage green units with solid wood worktops incorporating a fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and Rangemaster induction cooking range.

Upstairs there is a lovely study area with a full-height window opening out onto far-reaching views and three bedrooms, each with their own character. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room and other bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. The suites are white with high quality wares, chrome contemporary taps and a mix of tiling and aqua board to give that modern look. Overall, this is a barn that has been converted with care and offers a wonderful family home.

The property is set within 0.2 acres (STMS) with a gated, cobble set courtyard to the front allowing plenty of parking. To the rear is the main garden, which was establish many years ago and therefore already has maturity. The majority is laid to grass with an area of shrubs and trees to the rear, behind which is a new store shed.

In the rear boundary is a gate onto a public right of way. Against the rear of the barn is a sandstone patio as the finishing touch. The drive at the front is owned by Stubbings Farm, with Clay Barn having a right of way over it.

GARBOLDISHAM The popular and well-served village of Garboldisham is located approximately 3 miles from East Harling and approximately 8 miles from Diss. Garboldisham boasts a village shop/post office, pub, primary school and active community centre. Less than 20 miles away is the ever popular High Lodge, Thetford Forest.

The sought after and desirable village of East Harling benefits from having an excellent range of local amenities including a grocer, hardware store, butchers, chemist, doctors, two public houses, schooling and many social clubs including a large sports field.

A historic market town packed with period churches, timber-framed buildings and famously the six acre Diss Mere with central fountain and underground springs, Diss makes the perfect base for touring the inland towns, villages and countryside of both Suffolk and Norfolk. You're also just a stone's throw from the classical music centre Aldeburgh and the heritage coast.
