4 bedroom barn conversion – Blo Norton

Guide Price £850,000

Property Details

Location The barn is set well back from the road with far reaching views over this area of gently rolling countryside. Blo Norton is a small rural village with many country walks, a fine church and an active community. Local facilities are within the nearby villages of Hopton and Garboldisham which have a shop, post office and other small businesses. For a greater variety the bustling market town of Diss is just 6 miles to the east with schooling to sixth form level, local and national shops including three supermarkets and lots of sporting and social amenities. The town also has a mainline rail service on the Norwich to London Liverpool Street line (90 minutes). Bury St Edmunds is around 18 miles away, Ipswich and Norwich some 25 miles, and for those looking for the sea, the Heritage Coast around Southwold is around 45 minutes by car. Overall this is an attractive rural location with easy access to facilities.

The Property There are few barn conversions which offer so much in terms of style, space and light. The barn was converted in 2017 and the owners created, through careful design and attention to detail, a truly contemporary living space all on one level with lofty rooms and an amazing amount of light. The front door in its bright orange, sets the tone and on entering the hall, which runs down the middle of the barn, the style is immediately apparent. Large glazed roof lights (self-cleaning) flood the hall with light and on a clear evening the night sky is stunning. The far room is an open plan living/kitchen space, well fitted and having a wall almost all glazed making the room almost feel it is in the garden. This is further emphasized by the bi-fold doors. There is a further separate sitting room for a more intimate feel. The bedrooms are very well appointed, each having access to an ensuite bath/shower room, with the main bedroom also having a walk-in clothes closet.

Outside The barn is set within 0.50ac and the approach is over a shared access through the land of the adjoining plant nursey (ideal for stocking the garden!) and through a gated access onto its own private gravelled parking area. The grounds have been recently landscaped with a large central lawned area, vegetable and flower beds, a sandstone patio and a separate pergola known as 'the gin deck'. The fencing gives privacy without making the property feel too enclosed.

Services Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Air Source heat pump providing underfloor heating.

Agents Note The owners have planning to convert/redevelop a nearby building to their own new house. This will be an improvement to the immediate area.

Directions Directions: From Diss along the A1066 towards Thetford. On entering South Lopham take a left-hand turn after the White Horse Inn onto Blo Norton Road. Continue into the village of Blo Norton turning right into the Dutch Barn Nursery and The Beehive Coffee Shop. The property will be found at the end of the driveway on the left-hand side.
