Property DetailsLocation Whenever you are looking for your next house the old adage of Location, Location, Location is paramount and there are few properties which offer such a superb setting as Church Barn. It is set away from neighbours on the edge of a vast expanse of common on the very edge of the village, and yet it is so accessible with the bustling market town of Diss (which has a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in just 90 minutes) being just 4 miles away with its excellent range of facilities. The local primary school in Wortham is a mile down the road and rated as 'outstanding' and there is also a popular tea room and public house. State secondary schooling is at Hartismere (OFSTED -Outstanding) in the smaller town of Eye just 5 miles away.
A little further afield is Norwich and Ipswich both around 25 miles away and the Heritage Coast around Southwold and Walberswick is a 45 minute drive
This area combines a beautiful rural setting with easy access to facilities.
The Property Church Barn was originally converted in the 1980s and has been recently improved and remodelled to create spacious and bright living space with a combination of ground and first floor bedrooms. The kitchen with its large morning room and smaller snug is the hub of the house and enjoys views into the expanse of garden, whilst the more traditional barn style rooms include the dining room and living room with its wide redbrick fireplace and high ceiling.
The ground floor bedrooms are all set close together and there is a ground floor bathroom too. One of the bedrooms has a shower whilst the other two have wash basins. The two larger bedrooms are on the first floor with the main room having a double ended bath set into the corner of the room together with an ensuite WC.
Outside Church barn is set in immediate grounds of nearly 3 acres which includes 0.72ac of the common. The remaining 2 acres or so is private garden with numerous trees, swathes of grassland and the moat to the side. There are formal gardens closer to the barn with areas of box hedging, timber decking, fruit and vegetable areas and has a traditional cottage garden feeling - something for everyone to enjoy.
Outbuildings To the side of the barn is a detached 3 bay brick and pantile barn range (each bay is approx 16'x9'4) which provides good storage but could be converted to ancillary accommodation or perhaps a home office area. Water and electricity are connected. In addition there are two timber stores 19'9x9'8 each and a further timber barn 24'3x10'.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. New oil fired boiler providing heating to radiators and underfloor heating to part. Solar thermal recently installed for hot water supply.
