Location Situated some 8 miles south east of Norwich and 2 miles north west of Loddon, Thurton sits on the main A146 providing easy access to Beccles, Norwich and Lowestoft on the east coast. Amenities within the village include a modern primary school recently rated as outstanding by Ofsted and Vale Barn is within the catchment area for the popular Hobart High School in Loddon. There is also a farm shop and public house. Further amenities can be found at Loddon to include a Co-Op supermarket, Barclays bank, opticians, doctors surgery, dentist and a range of independent shops along with chemist, cafes, public houses, village hall, hairdressers and fast food outlets.
Description Originally outbuildings to Vale Farm and the adjoining farmhouse, Vale Barn is one just three on a small complex of properties in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Thurton, standing on a good size plot extending to 0.28 acre (subject to survey).
The property has been much improved by the present owners and as will be noted from our photographs is light, airy, exceptionally well presented and full of character, to include exposed timbers and ironwork, brickwork, oak doors and most attractive oak and tiled floors. There are four bedrooms in total all of which are doubles, the master and guest bedroom both having en-suite shower rooms. There are two really good size reception rooms, the dining room acts as the main entrance to the property whilst the sitting room measuring nearly 23' x 16' has a fireplace with multi-fuel stove acting as a focal point to the room and four sets of French doors leading to the front and rear gardens. Beyond is a utility and a very comfortable and once again particularly spacious kitchen/dining room, measuring over 32' with exposed timbers and an impressive range of colour washed units.
The gardens whilst well tended are very much a blank canvas at the present time and offers huge potential for those with green fingers. Within the grounds is a brick and timber clad cart shed with tiled roof, providing garaging for two vehicles, but also staircase access to a first floor ideal for a number of uses, currently used as storage.
This really is an impressive home and early viewing is strongly recommended by the sole selling agents to avoid disappointment.
