Property Description

A spacious barn conversion situated in a wonderful rural position opposite farmland, enjoying character features throughout, 4 bedrooms (1 ensuite), family kitchen/dining room, sitting room with vaulted ceiling & wood burner, private walled garden, garage. Energy rating E.

The property is a handsome converted barn full of character throughout, with exposed beams and timbers, exposed flint work, original brick walls, brick flooring and a fantastic vaulted ceiling in the main reception room.

It provides versatile four bedroom accommodation (one with ensuite shower room) that would lend itself to a variety of lifestyles and enjoys a wonderful rural position on the edge of East Ruston, with a walled low maintenance garden providing a high degree of privacy.

Some features of note include the three metre high chapel doors to the master bedroom, Norfolk latch doors to the remaining rooms and oil fired central heating complimented by a wood burner in the sitting room. The 23' family kitchen/dining room provides lots of entertaining space.

Parking space is provided by a private driveway and substantial attached garage. There is also a small brick store.

Fantastic rural views across the neighbouring farmland can be enjoyed from the first floor and the setting is a real selling point, being quiet, yet only three miles from Stalham and the Broads, five miles from North Walsham and just over four miles to the coast.

LOCATION Corner Barn is located on the corner of Chapel Road and Honing Road, hence the name which we understand dates back to when it formed part of a Victorian farm.

Set within quiet countryside, East Ruston boasts a popular local pub, the Butchers Arms which is only a short walk away, and the area is ideal for birdwatching, walking on Weavers Way or exploring the Norfolk Broads', with many popular towns and villages within a short drive.

Wroxham, with the River Bure, its shops, restaurants and terraced water front bars is only 10 minutes' drive. Sandy beaches can be found within a few miles at Sea Palling and Mundesley. There are train links at Worstead and North Walsham, and bus links and local shops in the towns of North Walsham and Stalham.

Norwich is approximately sixteen miles away, a renowned regional centre of shopping, restaurants, the Universities and Norwich Airport, with frequent flights to Europe. The new Norwich northern bypass now brings the area well into sensible commuting distance to south of Norwich and Gt Yarmouth.

Power and light are installed to the garage with three double power points. The locked patio doors at the end of the garage can be opened to allow furniture etc to be carried easily into the house, rather than through the front door.

The private brick and flint-walled garden is a real feature, incorporating a flagstone patio area and a lawn which is surrounded by established shrubs. A path leads to the brick and flint shed - used for tools, workshop and as a woodshed - which has lights inside and out with two double power points.

A second gate leads to the village road, which is next to the honeysuckle covered oil tank, and there are wall lights on the garage, house and shed.
