Four bedroom barn conversion with guest annexe in Hockwold, near Thetford in Norfolk

Converted barn including guest annexe with a wealth of original features, set amongst other conversions in a rural location near the town of Thetford in Norfolk

'The Red Barn' originally formed part of a large farm with the main farmhouse dating from the medieval period, however the outbuildings and original farmhouse were converted into separate dwellings and sold individually. Today the ‘Forge’, original cow sheds and ‘The Red Barn’ still have much of the historic character remaining.

Internally the property contains a wealth of exposed beams, open fireplace and four large original supporting brick pillars. Many improvements have been made to the property by the current owners although there is still considerable potential for a purchaser to put their own stamp on this rare property which overlooks an historic meadow.

The well presented accommodation consists of an open plan sitting / dining room with a plethora of exposed beams and an open fire to one end. This well defined space abuts the kitchen which offers a mix of the modern and more traditional styles and benefits from built in appliances. There is also a useful cloakroom / w.c. on the ground floor.

Upstairs the barn offers three good sized bedrooms with part vaulted ceilings and a range of exposed beams, together with an en-suite bathroom adjoining the master bedroom. The traditional family bathroom can also be located on this floor.

To the exterior ‘The Red Barn’ offers gardens to three sides with a raised timber deck, hot tub and parking for several vehicles. Please note that a roof terrace could be created to the side elevation (subject to planning).
