    About this property

    • 2 Shaw Farm Barns is a fantastically spacious, light and airy barn conversion set in an unspoilt rural location, with far reaching views over surrounding farmland, and beyond to the Wash and Lincolnshire. With over 4600 sq ft of living space, the expansive accommodation has a great adaptability to suit many types and ages of homeowner, with the brilliant asset of being within a few miles of the Norfolk coastline yet away from the busy seasonal peaks. The current owners have enjoyed 17 years of living at the barn, raising their family and making the house their own with many clever lifestyle touches that continue to provide them with happy memories.

      The barn can be entered at four points, perfectly demonstrating how versatile the layout is and providing an access for every occasion from the informal boot room after a coastal walk, to the impact of the living room when entertaining guests. The latter is a wonderfully open space, with an abundance of natural light from the extensive glazing, and with the striking visual of double height vaulted ceilings. A central clearview fireplace open on all four sides creates a cosiness within such a large space. The kitchen/breakfast room is part open plan to the living room, with granite work surfaces, gas hob cooker, and a central island and plenty of space for a dining table, and is a fitting focal point to family life at the barn. A further significant reception room is off the kitchen, measuring about 7.5m x 6.1m, which is the type of room that evolves with family life, and is currently used as a cinema/study/play/reading room.

      A bedroom wing on the ground floor hosts three spacious double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, and a further family bathroom. These rooms have vaulted ceilings.

      The first floor rooms are located off a galleried landing, with a luxurious element to it. The principal bedroom suite continues the spacious theme of the house, with a large bedroom with south facing balcony, a dressing room and bath/shower room with his and hers sinks. On the opposite side of the gallery is another impressive en suite bedroom, with vaulted ceiling, and a Juliet balcony with stunning westerly views over undulating farmland.

      The house benefits from underfloor heating throughout, to both floors, and a Sonos sound system split into zones.

      Gardens and GroundsThe barn is approached through a five bar gate mounted on brick pillars, onto a gravelled drive that sweeps through trees to a parking and turning area for cars and boats. This area adjoins the double garage, a detached building with associated store room, which could be utilised in many different ways.

      Charming bespoke iron gates, depicting the geese that this area famously enjoys viewing when they winter in Norfolk, gives access onto a wide stone paved path leading up to the house. An initial outside dining area to the south of the house, and entirely enclosed, has a Mediterranean feel to it, as a complete sun trap with grape vine and wisteria and directly next to the kitchen for convenience. There is a further terrace adjoining the house for outside dining and entertaining.

      The grounds have been thoughtfully curated to create a safe and welcoming habitat for local birds and insects. The boundary of mixed hedging including dog roses, honeysuckle, raspberry and hazel hosts nesting birds annually including wren, robins and partridges. The flower planting scheme is designed to attract bees and insects, with a variety of fruit trees within the gardens such as damson, medlar and quince. Areas of sheltered lawns give a sense of space around the house.

Burnham Market is approximately 9 miles from the house, with an array of boutique independent shops, bakery, butchers, fishmongers and restaurants including Socius and Number29.
