Barn conversion with stable block between Diss, Norfolk and Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Four bedroom timber framed barn conversion with stable block between Diss in Norfolk and Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk and within commuting distance of London by both road and rail

Albriene Barn is a period former timber-framed barn which has been carefully converted to form a well balanced and appealing home of great character.

The substantial frame rests upon a red brick plinth and is clad with weatherboarding, the steeply pitched gable roof is covered in reclaimed Suffolk pantiles. The casement windows are double glazed and the accommodation is heated via an oil fired central heating system. The fitting and fixtures are in keeping with the property hence the sanitary wares being of a period style and in white.

Commuting to London is perhaps best via Diss mainline rail link, although travelling via the A143- A14-M11 is preferred by some. Diss is a short drive to the North and historic Bury St Edmunds is approximately 21 miles to the South. Locally there is a wide and scattered resource of facilities.

The Agents wholeheartedly recommend a timely and early inspection.
