First floor bedroom with dressing room and en-suite and studio gallery. Second single storey barn to have open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, two bedrooms, shower room and bathroom. Garaging. Grounds of approximately 5.5 acres. 

Location The property is located within a particularly attractive rural position within grounds of 5.5 acres. Eye is a mile from the property and is an historic market town providing a range of independent local shops, as well as Barclays Bank, two Co-ops and a newsagent. There are various eateries, including The Queen's Head public house, two Chinese takeaways, a pizza takeaway and a fish and chip shop. The town boasts a motte-and-bailey castle, a library, bakery, hairdresser, art studios, antique shops, fabric shop, pharmacy, delicatessen, butchers, handyman and medical centre, as well as Hartismere Hospital, St Peter & Paul's CEVA Primary School, and Hartismere High School, which is rated Ofsted 'Outstanding'. There is also a community centre, playing field and a network of public footpaths.

There are further facilities in Diss, which is approximately 6 miles from the property. Diss has direct rail services to both Norwich (17 minutes) and London's Liverpool Street station (1 hour 20 minutes), and also offers Tesco, Morrison and Aldi supermarkets, as well as further schooling, restaurants, shops and services. The A140 lies to the west and links to the country's dual carriageway network, as well as Norwich and the county town of Ipswich.  

Description Planning permission was granted under reference DC/19/00091 on 11th April 2019 by Mid Suffolk District Council. It is understood the barn is listed and was granted Listed Building Consent under reference DC/19/00092 on the 27th February 2019. Copies of the planning permission and Listed Building Consent are available with these particulars. Further documents and plans are available to view on the Mid Suffolk District Council planning website. The permissions allow for the conversion of the range of barns to two residential units. Whilst the development will work well as two units, it is envisaged that a buyer may look to alter the planning permission and convert the range to a single dwelling. The completed barns, which are of timber, clay lump and brick construction will extend to approximately 3,000 sq feet and 1,345 sq feet.

The range of barns stand in grounds of approximately 5.5 acres. A boundary plan is included within these particulars and outlines the property in red.  

Services It is understood that mains water and electricity are within the vicinity but the vendor nor agents have investigated as to whether there is a sufficient supply for a new dwelling. The buyer will need to install a modern sewage treatment plant/s. The buyers should rely on their own investigations with regard to any services required.
