Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Filled with an abundance of charm and character, as well as many income, development and lifestyle opportunities, this exceptionally spacious, bright and beautifully converted Grade II Listed thatched barn, with 4/5 bedrooms and 6 reception rooms, as well as boasting an attached 2 barn annexe, a 2 bed holiday cottage and a double garage with 2 open cart bays, needs to be viewed to appreciate all that it has to offer. It is offered with no onward chain.


Set in a rural and quiet location, just off of the A149 with wonderful views looking out over the Norfolk countryside, along with its own formal landscape gardens and large private hedged paddock/field, you have a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but you are within very easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, the Norfolk Broads and the city of Norwich, as well as all amenities in the local market towns of North Walsham, Stalham and Aylsham and Wroxham.


The property is on the doorstep of the 61 mile Weaver's Way, a very popular route for walkers, horse riders and ramblers and is also equi-distance to many local attractions, towns and villages.


Bengate Barn sits within grounds and land of 2.25acres. With this, and the 8000 sq ft gross internal space available, this property gives a huge array of options as to how the property can and could be used, with lifestyle and income opportunities in all areas (stp), along with multiple spaces for extended family, such as grandparents to live close by. 


A fabulous feature of the property is its 22'4 x 19'10 custom built kitchen with solid oak worktops, double economy Aga and Aga Companion oven, along with a large island to the centre and plenty of space for family and friends to gather around the table, as well as the cosy lounge with its feature fireplace and woodburner for those cold nights.


The barn looks out over the grounds of the property, and the surrounding fields, with Worstead Church in the distance. The front gardens and field/paddock are south/south-east facing and a large paved patio is a wonderful suntrap on warm sunny days.


The field/paddock is laid to grass and has previously been divided into two sections, one housing a large polytunnel, ideal for setting up a small plant business, or for the keen gardener to set seeds and grow a wide variety of plants to then put in the surrounding gardens. 


The larger area is laid to grass, with several areas that can be re-claimed from mother-nature. Many development options come to mind for this area, perhaps providing Glamping or Shepherd Hut holiday experiences, or land for keeping a horse or two for personal leisure use, or there is the potential for equestrian use with stables (all of which could be subject to planning, depending on what you wished to do). 


There are also untapped conversion opportunities within the main barn, due to the space available and the layout of rooms, it could lend itself to being turned into a Bed and Breakfast, with the abillity of areas such as the studio being a guest dining room and there being a separate lounge area either up or downstairs for guests (stp).


For the right buyer (and planning considerations), the property could also be converted into several smaller self-contained flats, again with the use of communal areas, as a way to provide individual retirement homes, with communal grounds and living areas. 


The studio room to the right of the main barn, connected by a hallway in which there is shower and bathroom facilities could be made in to a one bedroom open plan living space, with its own bathroom, using that just off of the hallway, or it could be used as a creative space or an office.


There is also the potential, again subject to planning to convert the garage into two properties, as well as build onto the side.  


There is also a disused road to the side of the property for which there was once gate access into the property's field/paddock within the hedgerow.
