Property Details

Location This converted barn is located on the edge of Yaxham, a small, pretty village which is handily placed just 2 miles south of the Breckland market town, Dereham. Yaxham itself is home to a variety of small, local businesses including a local bistro/café. Other amenities include Yaxham St Peter church and a primary school which is just moments away at Clint Green. The Mid-Norfolk heritage railway line also runs through Yaxham, with the existing station still in situ; with the line still relatively active throughout the year with various special train services running between Dereham and Wymondham Abbey. For day to day purposes there is a regular bus service which connects Yaxham to both Dereham and Norwich via the N&N hospital. The villages is roughly 16 miles from the cultural and historic City of Norwich, which provides excellent shopping facilities, vibrant bars, cafe's, restaurants and general nightlife. Norwich is well connected by various transport links to further afield destinations, including London and Cambridge.

The Property 'Elms Barn' was carefully converted several years ago and demonstrates a good balance of warm and comfortable living space, blended with well lit, open spaces, exemplified by the galleried landing and full height, glazed windows that overlook the courtyard garden. light also floods into the second sitting room as a result. Both the kitchen/diner and separate dining room boast vaulted ceilings, the impressive 'country' style kitchen, with its feature apex ceiling beams, Aga and Butler sink provide the 'wow' factor and this beautifully flows into a dining area and out onto the grounds via French doors.

The bedrooms are modest in size, with four in the main part and one bedroom in the annex. A stylish 'Jack and Jill' en-suite shower room services two of the bedrooms, with the other bathroom just off the galleried landing, close to the other bedrooms.

Adjoining the barn by a connecting door is the separate annex accommodation. Its spacious 24' long, open plan kitchen / living space, provides impressive room for independent living for a family member or teenager.

Outside There is a real sense of grandeur on approach to the property, with double wrought iron gates opening to a tree lined driveway, which sweeps round to allow ample parking. Various mature trees are dotted in amongst the large well kept lawn, inset wild gardens have also been thoughtfully maintained, which also extend to the borders. Closer to the property a five bar gate opens to a delightful brick laid patio area, shaped lawns and planting; creating a real sun trap, idea for afternoon and evening dining.
