Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming detached Victorian barn conversion with glorious rural views, extensive accommodation and large garden. Of brick construction having exposed timber roof frames, skilfully blended with modern pre-requisites. The well planned bedrooms are placed on both ground and first floors, adding to the flexibility of use. Local village facilities include: a thriving public house / restaurant, shop, church and rural footpaths. Easy access to Bury and Diss.

The mellow red brick elevations are complimented by brick and flint low walls, the enclosed front garden wall being of particular note. The gable roofs are clad in pantiles and the windows are timber casements. Central heating is gas fired (private supply) and the replacement boiler serves radiators throughout. There are elements ripe for enhancement to one's own taste but these in our opinion will only elevate the property in terms of desirability and value.
