Location Barnacre is set within the wonderful rolling north Suffolk countryside around a mile or so to the south of the village where there is a village shop and fine church. The larger village of Stradbroke is just 3 miles away and has most day-to-day amenities needed and just a little further away are Debenham, Framlingham and Woodbridge. This house combines an attractive tranquil setting with easy access to wider facilities.
The Property This property is a wonderful combination of converted barn and period house which have blended seamlessly to create a both stylish and spacious family home. Internally it is quite difficult to know where the barn element starts and the house stopped as there is character in all of the rooms including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, pamment tiled floors and a charming red brick fireplace in the sitting room.
This property offers so much flexibility with potential to create a self-contained annexe (there are two doors to the front) and the upper sitting room which, whilst currently a wonderful feature of this house, could be divided to create further bedrooms. Overall this is a house of contrasts with some very traditional areas, some modern and offering a huge amount of flexibility.
Outside Barnacre is set within 1.183 ha (2.92 acres) of ground. This is divided to create a grassed field area, and both formal and informal garden space. The more formal garden really comes into its own in late spring and summer when the flowerbeds spring to life. No home is ever complete without its series of outbuildings and Barnacre has a store shed, outside office and stable block. In addition, consent was passed in 2004 for a commercial workshop/warehouse building and the footings were put in place which has kept this consent alive. The grounds are ideal for those who wish to keep a horse or two, perhaps work from home or simply to keep the neighbours at bay.
Agents Note There will be a development clause in the sale contract whereby the vendors will retain the right to 30% of the uplift in value over the area of garden containing the footings for a commercial workshop/warehouse for a period of 15 years, should separate residential development be obtained by a new owner.
