6 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
It was 20 years ago that our clients took a leap of faith when buying a small derelict barn. However, they had the wonderful vision to transform that barn into something very special.
By converting and extending the barn they were able to create a superb family home that opens up for gatherings yet has informal spaces for cosy evenings in.
Located in the heart of the hamlet of Rockland All Saints, near Attleborough, Stone Barn has so much countryside on its door step along with excellent access to amenities. The vendors feel they really have enjoyed the best of both worlds here.
The current custodians have loved family time spent here and the the joys of entertaining in the garden room, in those glorious summer months, which opens up to the terrace. It is, however, at Christmas where the main sitting room becomes the hub of the house. The home's dramatic ceiling height enables a very large tree, perfect to gather around on - imagine the idyllic Christmas morning in a room like this.
Like many in the county, the vendors love taking in the Norfolk skies and enjoy sitting on the patio until late in the evening and watching the sunsets. Their favourite place nearby is the local 'Honey Pots' - which is a country walk through local farmers' fields which is part of the local walkways and allows them pure escapism from day-to-day life.
The accommodation is spacious but it is also extremely versatile. At the front of the barn is a studio with its own access that our clients use to run their business from, at home. There is also a one bedroom annexe which is great for guests.
Having converted the barn and enjoying 20 happy years there the vendors appreciate a move will be a big thing for them but they feel the time is right to do another project. The area has, however, been so wonderful that they have fallen in love with it - so much they want to stay local.

The ancient city of Norwich has been home to writers, radicals and fiercely independent spirits for over a thousand years, and today continues in its legacy as an enclave of culture and creativity. 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.
This is a city that reveals itself the longer you stay - a city to fall in love with - a city to be a part of.
