About this property

  • Upgate Green Farm Barn is a traditional Norfolk barn of mellow brick under a pantile roof, converted in 2008 and part of a small collection of character dwellings in a delightfully rural setting surrounded by undulating countryside. The barn has been updated since the initial conversion including the addition of an air source heat pump, acquisition of further land to increase the size of the gardens and installation of ultrafast broadband fibre connection to both the house and studio.

    The barn has a light and airy feel, helped by vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light, with impressively proportioned rooms and all on a single level, making for a future proof and adaptable home. The barn is in a ‘U' plan, with a pleasingly conventional layout of the main living space in one wing, and the bedrooms grouped together in another.

    The focal point of the house is the open plan and triple aspect living/dining room, measuring about 11m x 5m, with double sided wood burner in the centre of the room and direct access to the gardens via French doors. This room could be configured in many different ways. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a large central island, bespoke cabinetry and range cooker, with a useful utility and boot room adjoining.
    The entrance hall is a welcoming area, with floor to ceiling glazing, and is the link between the main living space and the bedroom wing. This comprises a spacious principal bedroom, with dressing area and en suite shower room and a further three double bedrooms, and family bathroom. All bedrooms enjoy the vaulted ceilings seen throughout the barn.

    The barn is approached through an electric sliding gate, between high brick walls providing a good level of privacy. This leads to a gravelled parking area, and to the two bay car ports complete with electric car charge point.

    To the south of the barn is a brick paved courtyard, entirely enclosed with raised beds of lavender and herbs, with a mature olive tree at the centre. Off this courtyard is the studio/games room, a great asset to the house that could be utilised in many ways with a fully glazed elevation to the north and vaulted ceilings. The courtyard, given its orientation, is a fantastic area for outside dining and entertaining. A further brick paved area is within the ‘U' of the barn, with a covered outdoor seating area trained with jasmine and clematis, again ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining.

    To the rear of the barn, and accessed at points including the French doors from the sitting area, are the majority of the garden space that has been thoughtfully landscaped. Areas of wildflowers, herbaceous beds, shrubs, expanses of lawn, young silver birch and a mature hedged boundary all blend together to create a thoroughly enjoyable area.

    These continue round to the east, where a fine willow tree sits on the banks of the wildlife pond, separated from the house by a gravel pathway.

I feel this is future proof rural living at its best, on a physical level with everything on one floor, and an environmental level with air source heat pump and car charging points.
