5 bedroom barn conversion for sale

Tudor Barn, Costessey, Norwich

Sold STC £199,000

Property Description

Full description

Tudor Barn is a Grade II listed, detached, redbrick barn under a thatched roof filled with many beautiful original beams and traditional features throughout in a fantastic location on the outskirts of Norwich. The barn was built as an agricultural building in 1625 and was owned by the Costessey Estate between 1862 and 1918, after which it was sold privately and used for livestock. In 1954 the barn was re-thatched and used for a variety of businesses from a musical instrument repair workshop to a stationary warehouse! The current owner has run a furniture restoration business from the barn between 1992 and 2004. It now has full planning permission for conversion to a 4/5 bedroom family home. 

Under the current planning permission, the barn will provide 2,899 sq ft of well-proportioned family living space with original features throughout to include:

• Four double bedrooms on the ground floor, two with ensuite bathrooms. Stunning, vaulted open plan master bedroom.

• Further family bathroom

• Open plan kitchen/dining room

• Separate utility room

• Stunning vaulted entrance hall with mezzanine area above

• Sitting room on the 1st floor with galleried landing and feature windows

• Study on the first floor, which could also be used as a fifth bedroom

Tudor Barn is approached off a village road, leading into the barns driveway with parking and turning area. To front of the barn is the garden which is currently laid to lawn and to the rear is a large gated courtyard area.  

Costessey (pronounced "Cossy") is situated 4 miles west of Norwich in the valleys of the Rivers Wensum and Tud. The parish comprises two settlements: the long-established village of Costessey (known as Old Costessey), and New Costessey, which developed during the first half of the 20th century and has become a suburb of Norwich.

Costessey has recently benefited from two new builds: The Costessey Centre, a new community centre, and a new doctor’s surgery, The Roundwell Medical Centre. There is a range of local shops and services as well as three pubs (The Bush, The Harte and The Crown).
Cotessey has a number out-of-town superstores and a “Park & Ride” site, which serve communities to the west of Norwich. The Norfolk Showground is situated on the western parish border with Easton.

The Marriott’s Way footpath follows the route of the dismantled Norwich- to-Reepham railway across the north of the parish and pockets of old woodland remain at East Hills and Gunton Lane.

The nearest hospital is Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Costessey Junior School
