5 bedroom barn conversion – Chapel Lane, Botesdale, SuffolkGuide Price £550,000
Property DetailsLocation Botesdale is a sought after village for all ages, being well served with a small number of shops, restaurants, a small Co-op supermarket, doctors and dentist surgeries and public houses. The surrounding countryside is undulating and excellent for walking and cycling enthusiasts. Some 4 miles or so away lies the bustling market town of Diss with a wide range of shops including three national brand supermarkets, leisure and sporting facilities, schools and mainline railway station with a journey to London Liverpool Street taking around 90 minutes. The historic town of Bury St Edmunds lies some 20 miles to the west and the cathedral and cultural centre of Norwich some 30 miles to the north. Stansted and Norwich airports are each just over an hour away.
The Property Woodstock Barn was sensitively converted and finished to a high specification in the 1980s to provide spacious, well appointed accommodation over two floors. The front door opens into a part vaulted hallway which sets the scene and gives access to the principal rooms. The kitchen, a lovely homely room, ideal for sociable gatherings. All appliances are included in the sale including the range cooker with Calor gas hob and electric ovens. The Rayburn stove provides additional cooking facilities and also heats the hot water and radiators. Leading off is a study/snug which could equally serve as a separate dining room if required. The sitting room is most impressive, featuring an inglenook style fireplace, into which is fitted a Villager woodburning stove and the room is well lit with French doors opening out onto the terrace. Open studwork to the end wall partly divides the room providing for a further sitting room/study area. Solid wood flooring and quality fixtures and fittings feature throughout with most bedrooms having fitted carpets. One of the bedrooms has been thoughtfully converted into a stylish dressing room with tall fitted wardrobes to one wall.
It should be noted that the first floor accommodation has been arranged between the tie beams and as result the landing incorporates low beams and some doorways are particularly low. However, the generously sized bedrooms more than compensate for this.
Outside The property is approached from Chapel Lane via a set of wooden gates. A gravelled parking area can accommodate four vehicles in front of the double garage. A gate to the left side opens onto a path which leads to the front door. A further gate to the right of the garage leads into the rear gardens which are laid partly to lawn with a large paved terrace area immediately to the rear of the barn. All boundaries are child/animal safe and are well screened, ensuring that the gardens are entirely private. A gate to the south boundary gives access to the 1.95 acres of paddocks which are currently rented from the owner at a cost of £1000.00 p.a. Additionally, the vendors rent a car park to the north boundary at a cost of £500.00 p.a. which provides further parking as and when required, both for themselves and the residents of Oswald Mews, for a nominal annual fee. Abutting the barn to the west end are a couple of studios which serve well as workshops but offer up scope for conversion into an annexe (the vendors obtained planning permission for such a conversion but did not proceed). Overall, a superb home which offers flexible living spaces. It offers plenty of scope for families or couples looking to downsize on acreage but not necessarily on accommodation.
