Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A wonderful opportunity to acquire a very handsome converted, traditional chalk and brick Norfolk barn with outstanding grounds of 1 acre (sts) and attached paddock field of 3.5 acres (sts). First hand viewing is absolutely essential to appreciate the quality of the property on offer and the opportunity to buy such a property with land in this area is rare. The property is accessed via a long private driveway having a very quiet and secluded spot in the village. There is a parking area and the property itself overlooks the garage and stable block. To the immediate rear of the property there is a garden with a turning out paddock should one wish to keep horses close to the property, otherwise, this area makes a fine, private rear garden for entertaining and relaxing. Furthermore, there is an orchard and a bridge that crosses a stream into the attached land. Inside the property the barn offers spacious sitting room with wood-burning stove, library/games room, boot room, dining room, kitchen and breakfast room. There are five first floor bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room and a further family bathroom.  

NORTHWOLD Northwold is roughly equidistant between the market towns of Thetford, Swaffham and Downham Market. Northwold is the larger of the two villages in the parish, having a number of shops, a pub and sports and social club, whilst Whittington has a garage and caravan & camping site, as well as being the base for a number of local businesses. The two villages are located approximately two miles apart and both are positioned alongside the River Wissey. Further amenities can be found at the nearby market town of Downham Market. There is a main line railway station that goes to London Kings Cross (90mins) and it is an ideal place for walking or cycling and the peaceful waterways are excellent for boating and fishing.
