A charming village barn with river frontage.
1 Warborough Place is an impressive Grade II listed barn conversion, of attractive brick and flint elevations, enjoying a private and tucked away position within the sought after village of Stiffkey. The house, formerly a historic Norfolk barn, is set back from the coast road with plenty of off-street parking and a large south to south-west facing garden that sweeps down to the banks of the River Stiffkey proving a wonderfully peaceful area to enjoy, with fine views of the Stiffkey hills and water meadows.
The house has a great layout, centred around a significant open plan area at the heart of the accommodation with vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling feature windows providing plenty of natural light to a dining area and living area, complete with cosy woodburner. The kitchen/breakfast room is generous in scale, with 4 oven Aga and pamment floors ideal for rustic coastal life. Completing the ground floor is a large study with bespoke cabinetry, a useful utility room and a future proofing double bedroom, with en suite shower room.
The remaining three bedrooms are all on the first floor connected by mezzanine landing. The principal bedroom is spacious, with en suite shower room with the remaining two double bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings, at the opposite end of the landing together with the well-fitted family bathroom. A useful loft level could also be utilised in a variety of ways, with a paddle staircase to access.
Gardens and Grounds
To the front of the barn is the parking and turning area, with parking for a number of cars on a brick weave surface, enclosed by attractive flint walls.
The barn has a surprisingly large garden, running from the coastal road down to the rivers edge, with an ideal south to south-west facing aspect. There are paved seating areas adjoining the house, perfect for outside dining and entertaining whilst taking in the views, with expanses of lawn, herbaceous beds, shrubs and raised beds at various points. The River Stiffkey meanders along the southern boundary, with an abundance of wildlife, and where a further paved seating area has been positioned for full enjoyment of the setting..

To be able to wake up in the morning and pop next door for fresh coffee, to take back and enjoy on the banks of the River Stiffkey, is a lifestyle normally only afforded to city or town living and rarely in a coastal village.Ben Rivett
