About this property

  • The Barns is situated in the heart of the village, tucked away down a private drive shared with only two other houses. The barn itself is unlisted and has been exceptionally well converted and is beautifully presented throughout. Internally the barn has enormous character with an array of exposed beams and studwork, original brick floors, and an impressive double height sitting room with fitted contemporary wood burning stove. The accommodation flows remarkably well and unusually the barn enjoys large windows providing light and bright rooms throughout, taking full advantage of the spectacular views. The heart of the house is centred around the kitchen, dining room and snug, the exposed studwork provides an informal divide yet allows for the rooms to be well connected and light to flow between them. The garden room is a particularly charming reception area with large windows overlooking the gardens and far reaching views. Beyond the kitchen lies a further family room, the snug which, is ideal for children being so close to the kitchen/ dining room. The bedrooms are all light and bright, many with impressive original timberwork and the master bedroom benefitting from a Juliet-balcony with fine views. Outside the property is approached over a paved driveway with private parking for several vehicles and a brick courtyard to the front of the property. To the rear of the house is a large detached thatched barn which currently provides a large studio / playroom and benefits from architect plans to create a 2/3 bedroom cottage STPP, ideal as an annex or holiday let. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a kitchen garden to one side and to the north lies a detached home office. The garden boundary is enclosed by estate fencing and there are fine views beyond over rolling Suffolk countryside.
