Barnaby Farm is a fine period farmhouse, which
sits centrally in its grounds. The farmhouse is not listed, however, parts of it are believed to date from the 16th century. The house has been considerably modernised and sympathetically extended by the current owners. The renovations have been to a high standard and there are bespoke hardwood double glazed windows and doors throughout. The house has good ceiling heights and is particularly light, retaining an abundance of character.
The kitchen/breakfast room is of particular note. There is an oil-fired Aga along with built-in electric ovens and ceramic hob set in high quality fitted units. The kitchen has views over the equestrian facilities to the rear of the property and the surrounding farmland. There are French doors opening to a south and west facing terrace which is extremely private and secluded. Off the kitchen is a generous utility room with access to the rear of the house.
The dining room has some fantastic exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace with a wood
burning stove. There is a traditional pantry and
two storage rooms directly off it.
The spacious sitting room also has exposed beams and a wood burning stove which is located in an inglenook fireplace. With windows on three sides, the room is light with views to the garden and surrounds.
Barnaby Farm has two staircases to access the first floor. At the southern end of the house is a fine original staircase which leads to a double bedroom. This room also has access to the main landing as do the other four bedrooms. At the northern end of the house a new staircase rises from the entrance hall to the landing.
Accessed from the landing is the spacious master bedroom with substantial en suite shower room and enjoying uninterrupted views to the west over the surrounding gently undulating countryside.
Barnaby Farm is located just outside the popular Waveney Valley market town of Beccles which provides a full range of amenities, with some excellent independent shops and businesses along with a railway station with regular services to Ipswich and London. Beccles is known as the Gateway to the Broads and offers a wide range of
leisure activities. The popular coastal town of Southwold is about 12 miles to the south east. The City of Norwich, the regional centre, is around 18 miles to the north west, providing a comprehensive range of amenities and also an international airport.
Barnaby Farm is approached via a five bar wooden gate and attractive straight gravel driveway leading to a turning and parking area at both the front and rear of the house. Also at the rear is a double garage/cart lodge. To the west of house is the stable block which has two large loose boxes with rubber floors, a tack room/feed room, wash down bay and a hay store. There are a number of paddocks, the majority of which are post and rail fenced. The paddocks have been well maintained and had professional drainage work carried out over the years. To the south west of the property is a 40m x 20m all-weather outdoor manege with kickboards and full drainage.
To the north of the house is a single storey annexe
which has a bathroom and has been used by the
current owners as an office and gym, although it could offer other uses. Adjoining this is a substantial two storey outbuilding which could have a variety of uses, including commercial letting potential. To the west of this is a concrete courtyard and on the northern side there is
a substantial barn used for storage.
There are areas of broad leaf and some coniferous trees, along with apple, mulberry and walnut. There are two ponds, both of which are fenced, and the whole is bounded by traditional mixed
hedging and fencing. To the south and south west of the house is an area of garden, mainly laid to lawn.
