Spacious barn conversion in elevated position with fine views.


The Flint Barn is situated on the outskirts of the village of Thornage, set within unspoilt North Norfolk countryside on the edge of the Glaven Valley with a local network of footpaths and bridleways to enjoy. The neighbouring village of Hunworth has a renowned public house, The Hunny Bell, and a popular farm shop and restaurant ‘Back to the Garden’ is 1 mile away. The bustling Georgian town of Holt, is only 2 miles, and renowned for its boutique shopping including Bakers & Larners, Byfords delicatessen and many independent retailers alongside art galleries, antiques shops, jewellers, restaurants and cafes. It also plays host to Gresham's School.

The North Norfolk Coast, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can be found approximately 6 miles away in Blakeney, a traditional fishing village, offering fantastic sailing, a selection of pubs and restaurants and galleries. The coastline offers a plethora of eateries including a Michelin-starred restaurant and country house hotel ‘Morston Hall’, a network of coastal paths, bird watching, seal trips, crabbing and sailing.


The Flint Barn is a delightful barn conversion, enjoying a private position on the outside of the village with mature gardens and fine views of rolling countryside beyond. Constructed of brick and flint, under a pantile roof, the property is an established family home with good rooms over two floors, including a useful self-contained annexe. The house is now in need of updating and presents an excellent opportunity.

The house has well proportioned accommodation over two floors, with all four double bedrooms on the first floor. There is a kitchen/breakfast room, with Aga and direct access out to a charming south facing courtyard perfect for outside dining, a spacious sitting room with wood burner, a further T.V. room/reception room and useful utility/boot room. The first floor accommodation is accessed off a large landing incorporating a reading area, and includes a shower room, with the master bedroom served by an en-suite bath/shower room and dressing room.

The self-contained annexe can be incorporated into the main house, and comprises a kitchenette, shower room and sitting/bed room with own external access.

The Flint Barn is approached from the south, over a drive sweeping up to the parking and turning area with further access through gates to the gardens. The mature gardens provide a lovely backdrop to the main house, with an assortment of shrubs and trees, with pergola, secret garden, ponds, an area for a kitchen garden, chicken run and lawned areas with well stocked flowerbeds. To the south of the house is a substantial enclosed courtyard, with terrace adjoining the house and accessed from the kitchen. There is also a wood store and access into the main entrance hall.

The courtyard can be accessed by vehicle over a shared driveway. Within the grounds is an outbuilding currently converted into a music studio, with sound insulation, but which could be suitable for a variety of other uses. The gardens and grounds in all extend to 0.6 of an acre (est).

Mains water and electricity, private drainage, oil fired central heating and Aga.
