Property DetailsLocation When looking for the right property, the right location has to be of key importance. This house has what so many people are after with it being a little outside a very popular village, along a quiet country lane and yet it is very accessible. The market town of Diss is just 5 miles away and has a mainline rail service into London Liverpool Street (90 minutes), Bury St Edmunds is around 19 miles and then there are the coastal towns all within 40/50 miles as well as the world famous Broads. Redgrave as a village is highly regarded with its community run shop (if they haven't got it, they'll get it!) and community pub set opposite the village green and duck pond. In many ways it is the quintessential English village. For walkers there are lots of circular routes including one to the local Starwings Brewery and Tap House and additionally the Redgrave and Lopham Nature Reserve for the wildlife enthusiast is just a stones through away.
Essentially, this property combines a rural position with easy access to the wider world.
The Property Despite its age and character, Walnut Tree Farm is not Listed and this allows greater flexibility and less red tape. The house has been sympathetically extended and restored over the years to create a stylish family home which blends its original character with some more modern touches and makes a very comfortable and stylish home. Original features include the inglenook fireplaces, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and period doors. The kitchen is worthy of particular note as it is large enough to accommodate not only a farmhouse table but a sitting area too, and has an electric Aga, perfect for those cold winters evenings.
The Studio Barn his provides an ensuite bedroom and the additional space is currently configured to offer a gym/entertainment room, and a tack/store room which could easily be converted into a further bedroom or bedrooms. Alternatively, this barn makes for a superb home office area with separate wifi and views across the fields. Alternatively, it could be a separate annex, or holiday let (subject to planning).
