Call 01603 782053 or email for more details on this property
A stunning rural location with fine countryside views yet just five minutes from Wroxham and Horning. The wonderful level of privacy here is exceptional and the feeling of a much-loved home is the first impression. Converted by the current owners in the early 1980s, they have capitalised on the beautiful rural outlook with an impressive first floor sitting room with a bowed vaulted ceiling, a stunning cantilevered bay window and a beautiful antique marble fireplace. All of these features add to the sense of style and comfort. Unlike many converted barns which have cavernous living spaces which can lack a human scale, the owners have created smaller reception rooms on the ground floor with a charming snug/sitting room, a dining room and an attractive sitting area overlooking the grounds to the rear. Period style fireplaces and wood burning stoves add to the character and attention to detail has been important with plenty of exposed brickwork and fine joinery on the bespoke oak staircase. The four bedrooms are all attractive and there are three stylish bathrooms.
