4 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
Located in the ever-popular village of Cranworth, hidden down a private lane away from prying eyes is this wonderful four bedroom barn which was converted over 20 years ago by the current owners. St Mary's Retreat offers a private oasis which is nestled amongst the Norfolk countryside, giving sublime views from not only the garden, but all of the reception rooms and most of the bedrooms.
Approaching the property from the gate, there is a shingle driveway that meanders past mature trees and shrubs and finishes to the front of the property, where there is parking for several cars.
Walking through the front door we arrive in the central hub of the house, the large double-height open-plan kitchen/diner. With large glass french doors directly in front of you, the eye is immediately drawn to the amazing countryside views. This warm and inviting room has been the host to many family meals over the years and is one of the vendors favourite places in the house - it's not hard to see why.
From the kitchen, we can access the more formal dining room that sits on a mezzanine level, or the sunken family sitting room. Both rooms are equally spectacular in their own right, the formal dining room not only benefits from the great country views but allows you to be closer to the large structural wooden beams that stretch the entire length of the property. Underneath is a cosy sitting room with large feature fireplace that pulls you in and makes you want to sit down with a glass of red by the fire and read a book.
The property has been cleverly designed with the living and entertaining accommodation to one wing and the bedroom accommodation to the other wing. The bedroom wing is made up of four double bedrooms, with the three on the ground floor sharing the family bathroom and the main bedroom on the first floor having use of a large private en-suite.
Outside and to the rear is a large south facing garden, that is mainly lawned with a few mature trees and shrubs planted around. The property also benefits from a summer house, a pagoda and a paved entertaining area that in the summer months you could be tricked in to thinking you are somewhere abroad.
CRANWORTH A charming and picturesque semi-rural village in the heart of Breckland, ideal for those looking for the quiet country life, whilst still having amenities close by. St Mary's church can be found in the centre of the village and was built during the early 14th century. There is also a village hall and a local family run business, the Mid Norfolk Smokehouse, producing natural oak smoked foods such as crabs and a variety of fish. Cranworth really offers a sense of Norfolk life, surrounded by countryside with beautiful, idyllic walks on your doorstep.
Less than four miles away is the highly desired market town of Hingham. Grand Georgian architecture surrounds the market place and village green. It was in the 18th century when the socialites of high society built and took residence in Hingham that it became fashionably known as "little London". The many and varied local shops have the special character of a small market town but are up-to-date in what they provide. Despite the influence and attractions of neighbouring Norwich, an active and independent town life continues to thrive and grow.
Amenities include a family butcher, The White Hart Hotel, which is a community Boutique Hotel and Country Dining Pub, cafe's, library, primary school, excellent health centre, doctors surgery, dentist and frequent bus services providing access to the surrounding villages and towns of Wymondham, Attleborough, Watton, Dereham and Norwich. The town is located 17 miles from the Cathedral city of Norwich, which has many restaurants, shops, supermarkets and services including an international airport.
SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity and gas. Oil fired central heating and Klargester sewage treatment plant.
