Location The barn lies to the west of Roydon Road which runs to the west of the town of Diss, a bustling market town with weekly markets in the market square and auctions at TW Gaze auction house. Diss sits on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and offers a surprising number of independent specialist shops and businesses providing a wide variety of goods and services, including three national brand supermarkets. The town also benefits from a mainline rail station which provides regular commuter services to Norwich, Ipswich and London Liverpool Street, located to the east of the town centre. There is well regarded schooling at Diss infant, junior and high schools and there are also excellent primary schools at the nearby villages of Roydon and Bressingham. The town also offers a wide range of sporting, leisure and social activities including an 18 hole golf course and further amenities can be found at the regional retail, cultural and business centre of Norwich which lies 25 miles to the north via the A140.
The Property Originally used for threshing and storage, the barn was sensitively restored and converted in 2012 and offers some 2,350 sqft of living space. The majority of the accommodation is set out over the ground floor and offers flexible living space. There is extensive travertine flooring with underfloor heating to the main living areas although a large woodburning stove set into the fireplace offers efficient alternative heating. The bath/shower room fixtures are of good quality and feature chrome wall mounted towel radiators and the main family bathroom comprises a stylish stand-alone bath, wc and wide sink unit. The vaulted living room gives direct access into the kitchen which is fitted with a generous number of units with composite stone work surfaces, Zanussi cooking range with LPG hob and electric ovens. Within the kitchen is an understairs store cupboard and there is an additional large store room off the utility room.
The two first floor bedrooms are located at each end of the barn and are accessed via separate staircases. Both rooms have vaulted ceilings with Velux windows and en-suite shower rooms.
Outside The property is approached from the road via a 200m driveway and is set towards the rear of the plot. There is a large gravelled circular parking area to the front of the barn and also a triple bay cart lodge style garage incorporating one closed bay and two open bays. There is a large summerhouse and pond to the east boundary which features paddock fencing whilst the rear gardens are laid mainly to lawn with close boarded fencing to the boundaries.
The meadow to the front of the barn is being retained by the vendor and is protected by a restrictive covenant which prevents the land from being developed for the next 23 years. Further land of up to one acre could be made available to a purchaser, subject to negotiation.
