4 Bedroom Barn Conversion For Sale
For those seeking a country life, yet still needing convenience to city amenities in Norwich, the location of West Barn does not get much better.
In addition to having a farm shop and butcher on its doorstep - perfect for when you need some groceries but don't wish to take the car - this is a great home for those who loving entertaining.
The access to the rural walks in the local vicinity was one of the principal attractions for the current owners when buying the property 17 years ago and will certainly be one of the things they miss the most.
With convenient access to the A47, it makes it ideal for those wanting to explore the Broads and the coast to the east but also for access to the A11 towards Stansted and London.
The barn had not long been converted when the vendor bought this home, but like many new properties or conversions the landscaping was a blank canvas.
The owner has spent the last 17 years creating an established green oasis with a wide array of mature shrubs and trees giving seclusion and privacy and wrapping around the barn ensuring all rooms get a garden view. Our clients are particularly fond of how the rooms fill with light as the sun moves around.
In addition to the main house is a self-contained studio which would be perfect for artists or those running a business from home. It also has a west facing window enjoying the sunsets.
There is so much character throughout the barn with exposed timbers, brickwork and vaulted ceilings.
The layout is also very well-arranged with the living space being to the front including an open plan kitchen/dining/family space. A corridor leads to the rear wing giving access to all of the bedroom accommodation.
From the main sitting room you can enter the annexe. This makes it ideal for those requiring the space internally but it also has independent access giving it superb potential for multi-generational living or for a holiday let, subject to necessary consents. With two driveways there is plenty of parking and this means the annexe could be afforded separate parking from the principal barn.
