6 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
Hidden down a quiet country lane, The Barn is truly a property to behold.
There's so much character to somewhere like The Barn. As soon as you step through the front door you walk into a beautiful, vaulted kitchen, with stunning island that guests naturally gravitate towards when entertaining. With an old log burner in the corner of its kitchen, the feeling of warmth is truly enhanced. It is no doubt that in this inviting room many glasses of wine will have been shared with friends whilst the fire warmed those winter nights. It is in this first room that you are reminded that you have stepped into a wonderful old barn that is packed with character and charm.
Off the kitchen is the formal dining room and with a number of windows this room is always bright and airy. One incredible lovely detail here is the exposed brick and flint wall of the original barn, sparking undoubted talking points in this now magnificent home.
Moving through the house you enter the sitting room which once again benefits from an exposed brick feature fireplace - a cosy place to sit with a book and enjoy those long winter's nights.
From here you have the traditional and more formal entrance hall with stairs to the three double bedrooms and family bathroom. Back on the ground floor you have the fourth bedroom that could easily double up as a study/office or a snug for those peaceful moments to yourself.
Outside, and easily accessed from the kitchen, is a stunning west facing terraced entertaining area. This is a perfect spot to sit and unwind on a warm summer's night. For practicality, there is also the addition of a large double garage and log store outside.
The property also has a fully fitted two bedroom annex with a separate entrance and potential to section off a small garden for the property. Whilst the current owners have just used it for family and friends this could be the perfect little holiday let and with its closeness to the north Norfolk coastline, we believe it would be a very successful venture. The ground floor of this annex is of open plan configuration with a newly fitted modern kitchen, a downstairs bedroom with en-suite. Upstairs there is a further double bedroom with en-suite.

It's perfectly preserved medieval streets are home to a thriving community of small businesses, a vibrant food scene and an established arts culture. It is also a gateway to a county that continues to inspire people with its unspoilt landscapes, open spaces and big skies.
Named as one of the best places to live in 2021, Norwich lies approximately 20 miles from the coast at the confluence of the River Yare and the River Wensum, the latter still bending its way through the heart of the city. In the 11th Century, Norwich was the second largest city in the country, and today is still the UK's most complete medieval city. Strolling through the historic cobbled streets of Elm Hill, whatever the season, the Tudor architecture retains its character and beauty. Laced with merchant's houses, thatching, individual homes, speciality shops and small cafes, you'll be led toward the 1,000-year-old Norwich Cathedral.
To the north of the city the University of East Anglia is a remarkable example of brutalist architecture, and the campus is also home to the Sainsbury centre, a permanent collection of modern and ethnographic art, gifted by the Sainsbury family.
