Three bedroom 19th Century barn conversion • Wealth of character features • No onward chain • Off-street parking and garage • Fully furnished • Sought-after Norfolk village

Part of a small complex of former agricultural buildings which date back to the mid-1800s and which were converted for residential use in 2008, this mid-terrace barn conversion offers a fantastic escape to the country, wonderfully located in North-East Norfolk with easy access to the Broads National Park, the Norfolk Coast and the City of Norwich.

This brick-and-flint property has been converted to an exceptional standard, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams emphasising the character and charm of the accommodation, which is configured to maximise the benefit of the open fields opposite the property, and comprises three double bedrooms on the ground floor and the open-plan living area on the first floor. 

Finished to a high quality with a mixture of travertine and engineered wooden flooring, oak doors, architraves and skirting, a hand-made hardwood staircase and underfloor heating throughout, this exceptional barn conversion has been a cherished holiday home for the current owners, and is now offered for sale fully furnished and with no onward chain, representing an exceptional opportunity to acquire a turnkey property as either a principal residence, holiday home or investment.

The entrance to this individually-designed home is to the rear, through the private South-Westerly facing rear garden. The double-height entrance hall offers a bright and airy welcome, flanked by two double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and large windows to benefit from the abundant natural light. 

Walking past the well-equipped bathroom, and a utility cupboard which houses the electric boiler and hot water cylinder, you enter the principal bedroom to the front of the property, which overlooks the property’s lawned front garden and open fields opposite, and which also benefits from a generous walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room.

A hardwood staircase leads to the first floor living space, which is entirely open plan, and packed with character courtesy of the impressive vaulted ceiling, original beams and part-exposed brick and flint walls. 

Three windows overlook the fields to the front of the property, and this generous space is perfectly suited for sociable living, with a well-equipped kitchen area with range cooker and breakfast bar, a comfortable seating area and a substantial dining table seating up to twelve people.

The village of Tunstead is situated approximately two miles North of Wroxham, and offers local amenities including a primary school, public house, and small independent craft and produce shops, whilst a high school, medical centre, Post Office and range of larger shops and hospitality businesses can be found in Wroxham. 

With countryside walks and quiet lanes on the doorstep, and the Broads National Park nearby, this is the perfect location to explore much that Norfolk has to offer. The wide skies and sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast are under half an hour away, whilst inland the city of Norwich provides plenty of options for entertainment, amenities and travel, with an international airport and direct rail links to London. 

The versatile appeal of this individual property is sure to prove popular with a wide range of buyers. Viewing is highly recommended, and is exclusively available through Pendefords – The Individual Property Specialists.
