About this Property

Nestled in the quiet and picturesque Suffolk countryside is this substantial and impressive barn conversion, full of charm and character with generous and incredibly flexible accommodation including a self-contained two bedroom annexe, set in approximately 0.75 acres of established, well-maintained gardens backing onto open countryside, located only 3.5 miles from the highly regarded and well-served market town of Beccles.

Electric double gates with intercom system lead into the sizeable centre courtyard, which provides secure private parking for multiple vehicles and is enclosed on all four sides, firstly by the main barn, which dates back to circa 1780 and was fully renovated and extended in the 1990s. The attached self-contained single-storey annexe built in 2006/7 which can also be accessed from the primary barn, enables the accommodation to be fully incorporated into the main house, if required.

A substantial detached double garage was also added in 2000 and sits at the southern end of the courtyard. With a large detached pool house built in 2008/9, incorporating pump house, wood store and carport and housing a superb Endless Pool completing the quadrangle.

To fully appreciate the privacy, peace and quiet and versatility on offer, early viewing is strongly recommended.

Here’s what our customers say…

“Our experience with yourselves during our buying process has been professional and friendly. You have been quick to respond to any questions that were asked of you, and keeping us updated on the progress of our purchase. Thanks to Robert for finally finding our dream home for us, we much appreciate your time and efforts. Thank you all.”

Mr and Mrs Webb

“We only have praise for the way Waterside handled the sale of our property. Always courteous and professional, and kept us informed on a regular basis on progress over complications. Clearly a great team spirit operates in the office with everybody in the loop with what was going on. We would not hesitate in recommending Waterside to other potential sellers/buyers of waterside properties. Thanks for a job well executed.”

Mr and Mrs Hopkins

“I thought your service was very good, and in my opinion didn't need improving. You kept me well informed and any questions I asked you were willing to help me with. Your service was always friendly on the phone and in the office. I will certainly recommend you, and if the need arises will be happy to use your services again.”

Mr Terry

“We have used Waterside several times as Philip and his team always offer a first class service from start to finish. Many estate agents tend to let things ride after an offer is received but they continue to be on the ball, regularly chasing all other parties in the chain, which in the current Covid situation can prove difficult as most solicitors are working from home. They are extremely professional at all times and I would not hesitate to recommend them and use their services again. Many thanks ”

Mr and Mrs Cullumbine

“From the first viewing to completion the service provided by the Waterside team has been exemplary. Nothing has been too much trouble and our queries were answered swiftly and effectively. Robert has been a credit to the business, so a huge personal thanks to him. Thank you Waterside, great service, great team.”

Mr and Mrs Dixon

“Thank you Philip, Robert and Joy, it was a pleasure to deal with you. Now that I have moved in, the hard work starts! ”

Mr S Land

“Thank you for your help with our property, we would not hesitate in recommending you.”

Mrs Cole

“The sale of our cottage turned out to be a difficult process, not helped by the restrictions caused by Covid. The service which you provided was excellent and we particularly appreciated the way in which you pursued issues with clients, solicitors and surveyors. ”

Mr and Mrs Bainbridge

“We have been very happy with your handling of the sale of our holiday bungalow, under very difficult conditions, having to rely on email and phone calls. We would happily recommend your services to other sellers.”

Mr and Mrs Wright

“Thank you for all your help. We were very impressed with Robert, when he showed us several properties. He was very professional. If we can, we will always recommend Waterside to friends who are buying or selling property. ”
