    Spacious Barn Conversion with Spectacular River Views

    About this property

    • Hill Farm Barn is an exceptionally spacious and well positioned barn conversion of enormous character. Internally the barn has
      a double height galleried reception hall with multifuel stove, exposed beams and parquet flooring. The kitchen/ breakfast room has a 4 oven Aga,
      Butler sink and exposed original Suffolk white brick floor. The accommodation is superbly laid out with an extremely spacious first floor sitting room, benefiting from a fully glazed gable providing spectacular views over the River Alde from Iken to Aldeburgh. The property benefits from superfast "FTTP" broadband providing exceptionally fast internet speeds. Outside, there is a very spacious sheltered and part walled courtyard garden to the rear and to one side lies a spacious detached building that requires completion & could easily be converted into an annexe subject to planning. The potential annexe is remarkably flexible with a large sitting room with shower room on the ground floor and two spacious rooms on the first floor. There is another room which could be easily incorporated to form a second large reception room if required. This building would be ideal as secondary accommodation, a holiday let or provide ample space to work from home away from the main house. The gardens of just over 1 acre lie to the south and east of the house and there is planning permission in place to install a swimming pool. There is a substantial original outbuilding which has been converted into a large double cart lodge, garaging and store room beside which is a gravelled driveway with ample
      parking.

    Having sold coastal houses for many years I realised how rare it is to find a property like this. Hill Farm Barn has a wonderful, panoramic river view, extensive accommodation, excellent outbuildings, gardens all set in a wonderful quiet rural setting.
