About this Property

A spacious and immaculately presented detached barn conversion occupying a generous and private south facing plot, with far reaching views set on the outskirts of this highly regarded riverside village at the very heart of the Norfolk Broads.

Suitable as either a well proportioned and characterful permanent residence or a private, low maintenance second home or as a perfectly placed holiday let, this deceptive property was converted in 2008 and is of brick/block construction under timber cladding and a pantile roof.

The accommodation consists of a large triple aspect kitchen/dining room, a 22ft long dual aspect living room, two double bedrooms and a four-piece bathroom with claw foot bath and a separate shower enclosure.

Features include high vaulted ceilings throughout, oil fired under floor heating, complemented by a multi-fuel burner, sealed unit double glazing, south facing covered verandah/garden room, off road parking for multiple cars/boats/caravans, a two storey outbuilding/summer house and a timber workshop and gym.

The plot faces south and looks out over open farmland and beyond to Thurne’s Church of St Edmund.

The village of Thurne is set on the river of the same name and is within the Broads National Park. It is well placed for access to the rest of the Broads with Potter Heigham 6 miles away and Horning and Wroxham 10 and 13 miles away respectively. The coast is also within easy reach with Winterton on Sea only 9 miles away.
