6 bedroom house – BillingfordOffers Over £900,000
Property DetailsLocation Upper Billingford is a small hamlet tucked away in the south Norfolk countryside offering peace and tranquillity, with this property having far reaching views over the fields and woodland. Whilst having this hidden setting, it is far from being isolated and is only 3 miles or so from the centre of Diss which provides an excellent range of shopping, social and leisure facilities, all grades of schooling and, for the commuter, a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in around 90 minutes. The smaller market town of Harleston with its range of independent shops is just 6 miles in the other direction. Both the A143 and A140 are easily accessible with Norwich and Ipswich each around 25 miles away and for those who enjoy the sea, the Heritage Coast around Southwold, Aldeburgh and Walberswick is just 40 minutes or so by car. This property offers the best of a quiet rural location with good access to facilities.
The Property This is a superb example of what a barn conversion can really be, combining a blend of traditional with contemporary, cosy spaces and vaulted ceilings, and an open feel but with quite defined areas. The design has been to keep the living and bedroom areas quite separate but there is of course great flexibility in how they can be used especially given the need and desire to work from home much more. However, the 'selling' room has got to be the sitting room with its high valuated ceiling, wealth of exposed timbers and great levels of natural light. A close second comes the kitchen with its cream shaker style units offset against the cool grey work top and complimented by a large island unit - ideal for informal dining. The six bedrooms (four ground floor and two upstairs) allow flexibility of use and there are four bath/shower rooms as well as a mezzanine study area looking down into the living room.
Outside The Old Granary is set within 0.225ha (0.55ac) with the majority of its garden to the rear laid to lawn and stretching away in a westerly direction. There is a spacious patio which, because of the configuration of the barn, gives areas of sun and shade, ideal for those hot summer days. Within the grounds are various shrub beds, trees, raised vegetable beds and at the far end is a timber garden store. The barn has plenty of parking on the gravelled drive as well as the integral double garage.
Agents Note Whilst the barn is attached to others, because of the careful design, it has the feeling of being detached and has considerable privacy.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators.
Directions From Diss connecting with the A143 and heading towards Harleston. Proceed through Lower Billingford, past The Horseshoes public house and up the hill. Just after the brow of the hill turn left signposted 'Upper Street, Billingford'. Continue into the village around the sharp right bend and where the road bears to the left, turn right onto a concrete road and follow this around the corner to where the barn will be seen on the right..
