Kitchen/dining room, sitting room and ground floor cloakroom. Two first floor double bedrooms and bathroom. South and east facing low maintenance patio garden. Parking space. 

Location Little Barn is set back from Fore Street, close to the centre of Framlingham. The town is home to a good selection of independent shops and businesses including cafés, restaurants, hairdressers, antique shops, a travel agency and delicatessen. It is also home to the Crown Hotel, Barclays Bank and a Co-operative supermarket. Off the Market Hill are a number of other businesses providing day-to-day services including pubs, vets, a medical centre and schools. Sir Robert Hitcham's Primary School is highly regarded and Thomas Mills High School is considered one of the best state schools in the East of England. There is also Framlingham College, which is served by its prep school, Brandeston Hall, some 5 miles away.  In recent years Framlingham was voted the number one place to live in the country and is perhaps best known for its magnificent medieval castle, which is managed by English Heritage.

Framlingham is surrounded by delightful villages, many of which have popular public houses. There are lovely walks from Framlingham into the surrounding countryside, and amenities such as golf in nearby locations such as Cretingham (6 miles), Woodbridge (12 miles) and Aldeburgh (13 miles). The world famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall is within easy reach (10½ miles). There is also bird watching at the RSPB centre at Minsmere (15 miles). Framlingham is only 12 miles from the coast as the crow flies with the popular destinations of Southwold, Dunwich, Thorpeness and Orford. The county town of Ipswich lies approximately 18 miles to the south-west and from here there are regular services to London's Liverpool Street Station, scheduled to take just over the hour. 

Description It is believed that Little Barn was constructed in 2010 and still benefits from the remainder of its ten years Buildzone Warranty. Whilst offering modern comforts, it has been built in an attractive period style of brick and block construction under a pantile roof.

As the name would suggest, the property has the appearance of a little barn with high level weather boarded elevations to the gable ends. Externally, there is a south and east facing patio area with shingle beyond, making it relatively low maintenance. The property also has a guaranteed parking space, access to a turntable, and a vehicular right of way. Internally, the property offers comfortable and modern living. As well as UPVC double glazed windows throughout, it has engineered oak flooring with underfloor heating on the ground floor. On the first floor are radiators. The open plan kitchen/dining room opens to the sitting room, which has south facing French doors and windows to the both sides. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with useful storage, and a bathroom.
