An exquisite 2 double bedroom Grade II listed barn conversion located just 3 miles from the beautiful North Norfolk coast. This fine and highly intricate period residence has been run as a very successful holiday home for a number of years with impressive income figures generated. The barn boasts a wealth of character and charm with high vaulted and beamed ceilings, exposed brick and flint walls and wood burner fireplace. This quality conversion was carried out by local Norfolk tradesmen with a sympathetic approach to ensure all of the features were retained and a clever 'upside down' layout takes full advantage of the dramatic vaulted ceiling sections.

Arranged over two floors, the accommodation briefly comprises; Impressive reception hall with floor to ceiling glazed wall and turning staircase, master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and French doors onto a terrace, second double bedroom with French doors onto a decked terrace, bath/shower room and utility/boiler room. The first floor is entirely dedicated to the living areas and incorporates the sitting room with a dramatic vaulted & beamed ceiling, wood burner fireplace and a dining area. This flows through to the fitted kitchen, which provides a social and open plan environment. Perched above the sitting room is a mezzanine area, which has cleverly created an additional space for an occasional bed/study area.

To the rear of the barn is a delightful and generous landscaped garden featuring a raised sun terrace, lawns and mature borders. To the front of the barn is a charming open courtyard area enclosed by attractive flint walls and similar barns. Off street parking is a plenty in a designated hardstanding area. The barn is situated in a delightful environment with undulating open countryside all around and a local pub and shop is less than 1 mile away.  The North Norfolk coastline is less than 3 miles away and the traditional towns of Cromer, Sheringham and Holt are all conveniently nearby. 

ROUGHTON Roughton is a small village three and a half miles inland from Cromer on the main road to Norwich. It is an age-old home of man and on the Heath there are prehistoric burial mounds. There is a church with a 1000-year-old tower. The church is mainly Saxon with some Tudor battlements and on the walls of the nave is a gallery of sixteen sculptures including a toad, a lion, and a dragon. A genius found sanctuary on Roughton Heath in September 1933, his name was Professor Albert Einstein, As he told a local reporter 'All I want is peace, and could I have found a more peaceful retreat than here in England?' One of Einstein's callers in Norfolk was the sculptor Jacob Epstein who began the famous bust of Einstein in Roughton. The village has a pub, The New Inn.
