Barn conversion with 4-5 bedrooms in Thurlton, near Beccles, Norfolk

Single storey barn conversion with flexible accommodation set in a quarter of an acre plot in an unspoilt country setting near the Norfolk market towns of Loddon and Beccles

This is a charming and deceptively spacious single storey barn conversion providing flexible accommodation.

It is understood that The Barns date back approximately 100 years and was converted to a residential dwelling in 1986 by a well regarded local architect. The property is constructed of red brick and weather board elevations under a pantiled roof.


The property offers generous and flexible accommodation to suit different family circumstances. The open plan kitchen is a light and bright space having ample room for a breakfast table, with access from the back door to the utility room and double garage. The dining area is flooded with light from the large patio doors to the rear garden. Both the dining and sitting areas benefit from solid fuel burning fires and the open plan design creates a fluid and spacious area. From the large hallway there is access to all the bedrooms, and the study, which enjoys peaceful views of the garden. The master bedroom is dual aspect with extensive cupboards and an en-suite shower room. The three further bedrooms are down the corridor leading to the second sitting room which also has access to the front garden.

In brief the accommodation is as follows:
Hall, study / bedroom four, sitting area, dining area, kitchen / breakfast area, utility room, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, two further bedrooms, second sitting room / bedroom five.

There is extensive attic space which is partially boarded (not inspected).


In total about 0.25 acres (STS).

The gardens to the front and rear of the property are predominately laid to lawn with herbaceous boarders to the front and well established climbing roses to the rear. From the rear garden there is direct access to a green road which offers spectacular walks and views of the extensive surrounding countryside.

A gravel driveway leads to the double garage which has a remote controlled up and over door with a separate secure garden store.


The Barns is situated down a peaceful no-through road on the edge of Thurlton Marshes in the popular south Norfolk village of Thurlton.

The village itself provides everyday facilities including a primary school, church, village hall, post office stores and public house. A further village shop can be found at Norton Subcourse.

The Barns enjoys a wide variety of wildlife from the surrounding working countryside and the marshes provide glorious views across to Reedham and the Waveney Valley.

There is a regular bus service to the pretty market towns of Loddon (five miles) and Beccles (eight miles) and they have a wealth of amenities. The property is within the catchment for Hobart High School, Loddon which has achieved an excellent Ofsted report. The railway station at Beccles has regular services to Lowestoft and London. The cultural attractions of Snape Maltings and Aldeburgh are within an hours drive and the famous Suffolk coastal town of Southwold is half an hour away.

The A146 provides easy access to the historic Cathedral City of Norwich with its bustling market, cinemas, theatre and many restaurants and public houses. Norwich offers first rate communications with the mainline railway station providing services to London Liverpool Street (approx. 2 hours) and an international airport. Norwich is 16 miles away (all distances are approximate).
