Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Quietly situated on the southern edge of this popular North Norfolk village but only a short walk away from the village pub and the renowned deli. Having originally been converted about 20 years ago, the barn has more recently been updated to a very high standard and is now presented in a much more contemporary style whilst losing none of its character. The property is extremely well arranged for socialising and entertaining with the dining area linking the open plan kitchen with the more cosy sitting room beyond giving the living space a natural flow. In addition there is a garden room that gives access out to the south facing, private and walled garden and there is also a very useful utility room also giving access out to the garden. There are three good double bedrooms, one on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room whilst the two upstairs share the family bathroom. Outside and in addition to the garden there is a garage as well as off street parking for at least two cars. With its tasteful blend of character features with contemporary colours and fittings, this is a wonderful example of how good a barn conversion can look and would make an ideal home from home for its next custodian.

GREAT BIRCHAM The village of Bircham lies on the border of the Sandringham Estate, about 7 miles from the north Norfolk coast and comprises of three parishes:- Great Bircham, Bircham Tofts and Bircham Newton. Great Bircham has a good farm shop with deli, a church, St Mary's and the Kings Head Hotel with award winning restaurant. There is also a fully restored windmill, considered to be the only working windmill in this part of the county, where visitors can climb five floors up to the fan stage and on windy days, can see the sails and milling machinery turning and admire the view. The mill also has a bakery, tea room, gift shop, small children's farm and cycle hire centre. Bircham Newton has a small, private trout fishing lake and the Church of All Saints, one of the smallest in the county, with no porch, few windows and Victorian box pews.
