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.
