THE BARN, LIVERMERE ROAD, GREAT BARTON IP31 2SB

Great Barton is a popular and sought after village located just some 3 miles to the north-east of the historic cathedral town of Bury St Edmunds which affords excellent shopping facilities with the arc shopping centre and twice weekly open air market, together with educational, recreational and cultural amenities including the famed Theatre Royal and renowned Abbey Gardens with its ancient ruins. The A14 can be accessed from Bury St Edmunds which thus provides fast road links to Ipswich, Cambridge, the Midlands and London via the M11. Local village amenities include a Primary School, Post Office/Stores, Church, Garage and Public House.

The Barn, together with The Barn Cottage Annexe, stand tucked away and well screened off Livermere Road behind a gated entrance with long sweeping driveway approach and central flower bed with turning circle set within grounds extending to just over half an acre subject to survey. The Barn is originally understood to have served The Bunbury Hall Estate and is an impressive and substantial property of brick and flint construction with upper black weatherboarded elevations under a slated roof and affords an excellent range of accommodation featuring a superb vaulted reception hall with overlooking galleried landing and triple aspect first floor sitting room with door opening to potential roof terrace. The Barn is served by gas fired radiator central heating together with mainly UPVC double glazing and whilst has undergone some recent improvements, it is fair to say would now benefit from further updating.

The Barn Cottage Annexe is currently under a Tenancy agreement until 21/4/17 being let at 750 pcm and is a single storey brick and flint 2 bedroomed cottage understood to have been converted around the 1980's and provides rental income but for the future offers dual occupancy potential for dependent relatives etc. The Annexe is also served by gas fired radiator central heating and UPVC double glazing.
