Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tucked away on the south side of South Raynham village in wonderfully rolling countryside with views over ancient grazing marshes, Manor Farm Barn represents a fantastic and rare opportunity to create a grand country home.  Set in grounds of approximately three and a half acres (STMS), the property possesses a multitude of exceptional features including two pairs of unusual double and full height threshing doors which face due south and north, magnificent brick and flint construction, and a sheltered west facing walled courtyard.  This gives the barn a sense of grandeur and exclusivity which is enhanced by its location, secluded setting, and views over open countryside.

Manor Farm Barn is sold with full planning consent to convert into a five/six bedroom home which will extend to over 5,500 sq ft of living and entertaining space.  The barn's main entrance will be from the east side through a wide and welcoming entrance hall.  This leads through to the grand living and entertaining space, with imposing double height area in the centre and proposed galleried landing.  Downstairs in the main barn will be the kitchen, dining and reception spaces which take maximum advantage of the light and views from the two sets of double threshing bays, as well as a separate study.  Upstairs are two substantial bedroom suites with walk in wardrobes and stunning views.

The remainder of the accommodation is on the ground floor in the eastern wing of the secluded enclosed courtyard. On the north-western corner of the courtyard is a separate one bedroom, en suite studio, which could double-up as a gym or alternative study.

Outside there is ample parking for several cars.  The grounds are enclosed on three sides with traditional Norfolk estate fencing and hedging, and benefit from a number of mature trees as well as recently planted semi-mature lime, beech, willow, walnut and cherry and a young orchard by the stream on the southern boundary.   The paddock area has been put down with a conservation mix and the whole area is a haven for wildlife. 

South Raynham is situated in the vale of the River Wensum and thanks in large to the Townsend family at Raynham Hall, much of the countryside surrounding the village is laid out as parkland, giving it a delightful setting that has remained largely unchanged since the hall was built almost 400 years ago. The popular market town of Fakenham with its race-course, selection of supermarkets, independent shops and weekly market, is just five miles to the north east and there is also a village shop and garage within a few minutes' walk.

The market town of Swaffham, with its famous Saturday market and Waitrose store, is 15 minutes' drive away to the south.  Looking north, the fashionable North Norfolk coast and beaches are easily accessible, with Wells-next-the-Sea about 20 minutes by car.
