Sowerbys are delighted to offer a high quality bespoke barn conversion of a beautiful period barn enjoying far reaching views over farmland and village church with accompanying annexe cottage and four bay cart shed parking. Converted by the current owners, only by first hand viewing can one gain a full appreciation of the quality of the barn on offer. Accessed via a long privately owned drive past the village church with access to a parking area and cart shed at the rear. The barn enjoys a traditional feel with arrowhead side elevations and central extending elevation with double height opening set with glazing and access doors. Inside the property there are high end bespoke fittings throughout. The ground floor has underfloor heating supplied by an air source heat pump and the flooring is set with either travertine marble flooring or oak flooring. There is a dining hallway which leads to a reception hallway with a stunning bespoke contemporary oak staircase with glass balustrades, a spacious sitting room with projector and screen points, kitchen/breakfast room with contemporary island unit and integrated appliances and a fantastic family sun room with double bi-folding doors allowing the outside to be brought in with a fantastic south facing aspect. Furthermore, there is a WC, utility room and study/fifth bedroom. The first floor has a central galleried landing with access to a stunning master suite with 5m ceiling and far reaching views over the surrounding farmland. In addition, there is a large walk-in wardrobe and en-suite. The remaining bedrooms all have en-suite facilities set with bath or shower, travertine tiled walls and flooring and contemporary fittings.

Accompanying the barn is a beautifully converted outbuilding which is now a one/two bedroom annexe cottage. This area is suitable for extended family and it may be possible for short term tenancies or holiday lets to subject to any relevant planning permissions and consents being granted. This barn has been fitted out to an equally high standard as the main property with entrance hall with travertine flooring, bedroom and open-plan living accommodation with the open ceiling, roof trusses and purlins on display. Furthermore, there is a second area currently used as a second bedroom but designed originally as a garden room space. This is set with solid wood flooring and the cottage has underfloor heating via an air source heat pump. The annexe cottage also has its own separate garden, which if required, could easily be brought back into the main garden.  

WEST BILNEY The village of West Bilney is situated 7 miles south east of King's Lynn and was once home to Elizabeth Freke, a 17th/18th century memoirist, whose father bought her the Manor Farm and 1700 acres of land here. Nearby are the beautiful Pentney Lakes which are popular with bird watchers, anglers and lovers of nature. There is a choice of schools, post office, shops and churches in the immediate local villages. Tesco's, Homebase and other national brands are conveniently located on the A47 direct route into King's Lynn with its large choice of shops. Alternatively, by taking the A47 you reach the pretty historical market town of Swaffham. A mainline train service from Kings Lynn to Kings Cross takes approximately 1hour 30 mins.
