££550,000 Guide

3 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale

The Old Coach House, like the name suggests, was once upon a time a place of work and functionality. However, after a serious amount of love and attention the building is now an adored home. With three bedrooms in the main house and a self-contained, one bedroom annexe to the rear of the property, it still has elements of being a functional workhouse, but there is a clear and abundant feeling of being a cosy family home.

Entering the property, you are welcomed into the central hallway and in this case all the rooms in the main house stem from here. The large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, is the hub of the home. With multiple windows and large bi-folding glass doors, this room is always a bright and airy space, filled with natural light. However, when the nights draw in and the temperatures drop, the feature brick wall, wood-burner and exposed wooden beams create a warm and cosy atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy. To the opposite end is a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar and a hidden utility room wrapping around towards the back of the property.

Further along the hallway we have the family bathroom and three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys its own en-suite shower room.

To the very rear of the property is a self-contained annexe, which has an open-plan kitchen/living room, bi-fold doors onto a private courtyard, spacious double bedroom and a shower room. This is great accommodation for family, but could equally be an amazing extra income if run as a holiday cottage.

Outside there is parking for several cars on the long-shingled driveway, a double cart shed, and a beautiful landscaped garden with a paved entertaining area.

SHIPDHAM Almost two miles in length, Shipdham is Norfolk's longest village nestled between the market towns of Watton and Dereham in the Breckland region and a designated Conservation Area.

Noted in the Domesday Book as a thriving, well-established settlement of 70 households, it was one of the largest of the time with a church and woodland. During World War II, the village became home to the USAAF 44th bomber group, which was based at its airfield, and the historic site is now home to Shipdham Aero Club and museum.

Today, Shipdham has a thriving community with a GP surgery, Post Office, nursery and primary school, shops and local pub making it a fantastic village for all ages. Along with a clutch of beautiful period properties, Shipdham has grown in recent years with the development of several quality new-build developments which have been sympathetically incorporated within their rural setting.

Less than 6 miles away is the classic country market town of Dereham, an architectural haven with plenty of Georgian gems set on generous plots, blended with more recent developments.

A twice weekly market appears on Tuesdays and Fridays, along with a strong cohort of independent and specialist shops and free parking, making the town a fabulous place for an afternoon spent browsing.

With good local schools, a leisure centre and golf course, Dereham and its surrounding villages, such as Shipdham, are fantastic locations to enjoy the best of Norfolk country living.

SERVICES CONNECTED Mains water, electricity, drainage and gas fired central heating.
