4 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
North Norfolk village life personified with glorious, private grounds wrapped around a traditional brick and flint barn conversion and wonderful countryside views.
'The Glaven Valley' is a designated area of conservation that features glorious open spaces, unique and diverse natural habitats and a collection of traditional villages that run from the coastline and follow the River Glaven inland across north Norfolk. This idyllic area is home to some of north Norfolk's most cherished locations and for some fortunately placed properties it is called home.
'The Sycamores' at Thornage is one such property that sits in an elevated position and commands wonderful views south over the valley. This captivating location lies just 2.5 miles away from the Georgian market town of Holt and less than 6.5 miles away from north Norfolk's celebrated coastline.
Expertly crafted from a traditional brick and flint barn, this sumptuous home boasts extensive lateral space, which extends to over 2,100 sq. ft., and features immaculately presented accommodation with well-proportioned rooms and a highly versatile layout.
Embracing the architectural theatre that only a barn can provide, this fine home showcases wonderful receptions, an exceptional kitchen/breakfast room and four individual double bedrooms served by three bath/shower rooms.
A triple aspect formal sitting room features a double height, vaulted and beamed ceiling with southerly views over the gardens and valley beyond. A dual aspect, vaulted and beamed dining room provides the perfect space for entertaining on a grand scale and enjoys direct access out onto a sun terrace.
A 24' kitchen/breakfast room creates the ideal 'hub of the home' and showcases extensive 'Shaker' style cabinetry, capped in crisp white Quartz worktops, with a suite of high-end appliances and a central island. A separate utility room delivers that vital practical space and doubles as a spacious boot room and cloaks area.
Set off a long hall is a substantial wing of four bedrooms and notably the principal bedroom features a sumptuous en-suite bathroom. A guest bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room, whilst two further double bedrooms are served by a family sized bathroom.
Set around a central courtyard, which provides extensive parking options, there is an attached double garage formed within the main barn structure, plus a high versatile detached barn that currently provides further garaging and a separated store.
The approach to the barn is via a long, sweeping carriage driveway that wraps around a south facing garden area. This space provides a high degree of privacy to the property and enjoys glorious southerly views over the valley. On the south westerly elevation of the barn is a formal garden, which is fully enclosed by mature planting and features sprawling lawns, an extensive sun terrace and summer house. An area of the formal gardens is cleverly hived off to provide an established vegetable plot with fruit cage, greenhouses and compost area.
The grounds extend to around 0.75 acre (STMS) in total and create a discreet and magical environment for the property to enjoy.
Whilst 'The Sycamores' is blessed with an idyllic rural setting it enjoys easy access to the Georgian market town of Holt with its vibrant town centre and excellent amenities. Furthermore, the north Norfolk coastline is just a short drive away.
THORNAGE A quiet hamlet on a by-road in the Glaven Valley, Thornage is located approximately 2.5 miles from the Georgian town of Holt and the stunning north Norfolk Coast is just 6.5 miles away.
A strong sense of community thrives among the proud residents and local businesses of Holt, and many of the latter champion the local 'Love Holt' initiative, which waves the flag for the independent shops that add vibrancy to the Georgian town centre. Throughout the year, there are plenty of local events including a summer Holt Festival and 1940s Weekend, which takes over the town and 'Poppy Line' heritage railway that runs between here and Sheringham.
With a traditional butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer, the town even has its own department store and food hall, Bakers and Larners, a local landmark which has been run by the same family since 1770.
Life moves at a leisurely pace in Holt, and there are plenty of places to idle over a coffee or bite to eat. Believed to be the oldest house in town, Byfords deli and caf頩s a central landmark and fabulous place to stop and watch the world go by. There's no need to hurry home - relax and enjoy country life! On the edge of town is the eponymous Gresham's school.
While there is an abundance of Georgian property, particularly in the streets surrounding the town centre, venture a little further and you will find leafy roads with stylish, detached 1930s family homes, plus well-designed contemporary houses that blend seamlessly with their country setting. And, should you need to spread your wings a little wider, head to the heathland of Holt Country Park or Spout Hills and reconnect with nature.
If you are looking for the perfect spot to enjoy country life, Holt is one of Norfolk's finest market towns with easy reach to the coast and city.
