3 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
A short walk from the famous Brisley Bell, a hop skip and a jump from the village green and as the name suggests, only a stone's throw away from the local church, we find Church House Barn. It is a stunning example of a two/three bedroom cart lodge conversion which has been lovingly refurbished over the years.
Approached over a long shingled driveway, coming off Church Street and hidden from passing traffic by large hedges which surround the entire property, it is easy to forget you are in the centre of one of the most sought after Norfolk Villages.
Meandering down a small, paved pathway we get the first glimpse of the true beauty of the property, however this is what would have been the rear of the cart lodge and the views of the property are even better sitting in the rear garden, but more on that later.
Walking through the front door we step into a small porch with a door leading to a downstairs shower room and another door leading into the kitchen. Here we have large glass double doors that are rarely closed on the warmer summer months as the garden beyond is so inviting. The kitchen units are in a 'L' shape and the kitchen itself is large enough to fit a small kitchen table in the middle for family meals to be shared.
Stepping through from the kitchen and into the large and spacious family room, the glass doors stretch the full length of the property giving superb views over the garden. The room also benefits from having log burner in one corner, gorgeous wooden flooring and wonderful characterful features everywhere the eye wanders.
Flowing nicely off this room we have what is now being used as the dining room. This, however, has been used in the past as an office and a third bedroom. In its present use as the dining room it has been a wonderful area to come together on those special occasions- the vendors particularly love this room over Christmas.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms and family bathroom.
Outside and to the rear we have a beautifully manicured garden mainly laid to lawn but with some mature trees and shrubs cleverly planted to divide the garden nicely. However it's not the trees, shrubs or the amazing entertainment space this area has to offer that drags you outside, but the reward of the stunning views that you get as you walk to the bottom of the garden and look back onto the beautiful property. With its intricate brick work and amazing arches there aren't many barns we have seen that can compete.
To the front of the property is a large shingle driveway with parking for several cars and a double garage, which with the right building consents could be created into another room to accommodate a visiting relative or rambunctious teenager. Nevertheless, in its current use a garage it is a very handy space.
