Full description

A stunning barn conversion retaining much character and feature within, whilst benefiting from being upgraded and enhanced to a high specification throughout. Boasting a southerly aspect to the rear with grounds extending to approximately 3/4 of an acre (sts). Large cartlodge with annexe potential.


Situation - Located within the attractive village of Tivetshall St Mary found close to the South Norfolk borders. The village is found just off the A140 and has proved to be a popular location over the years, lying approximately 7 miles to the north of Diss and 15 miles to the south of Norwich. The village further benefits from having a rural, yet not isolated position and is within close proximity of many other popular local villages (including The Pulhams and Dickleburgh very close by) which offer a more extensive range of good local amenities, including public houses, convenience stores, doctors surgery and schooling, etc. For the city commuter there is easy access to Diss, which has the benefit of a mainline railway station with regular services to London, Liverpool Street and Norwich. A further more extensive range of amenities and facilities can be found within the thriving village of Long Stratton lying only 6 miles north.

The property comprises a single storey brick barn having been tastefully converted and retaining much character and feature throughout. Much of the original red brickwork has been retained with exposed timbers and beams and inglenook style fireplaces, creating a lovely feeling within.

Particular features include the natural pine brace and batten doors with Suffolk latches and pamment brick flooring, whilst incorporating 21st century living with underfloor heating, a newly fitted bathroom and high specification kitchen with granite worktops, etc. There is a good feeling of space within, further accentuated by having vaulted ceilings throughout. The accommodation is well laid out comprising of two bedrooms, however, when the agent sold the property to the current vendors some 13 years ago it had been a three bedroom property. The vendors took out a partition wall between bedrooms two and three to create a large master bedroom and this could be easily reinstated if required and subject to any necessary consents.
