Property Description

Swallow Barn presents a truly unique opportunity to acquire a Grade II listed bespoke barn conversion where traditional architecture harmoniously meets modern luxury. This stunning property features exceptional woodwork detailing throughout, emphasised by a Norfolk reed thatched roof which sets a picturesque scene for this exquisite home.

Approach Swallow Barn via a private, secure motorised gate that leads you into an expansive driveway with capacity for over seven vehicles, complemented by an additional carport. The barn showcases striking black wooden cladding contrasted by brown wooden framed windows and is crowned with a distinctive Norfolk thatched roof, making it a standout property in the area.

Upon entering through the front door, you are welcomed into a grand entrance hall that offers a direct and inviting line of sight straight through to the lush garden which gives access from the dining room with the folding doors onto the patio. The hall is a testament to skilled craftsmanship, featuring rich oak flooring, meticulously carved oak staircase spindles, and exposed character beams that carry through the home.

To the left of the entrance, there is a downstairs WC with heritage units, leading past the exposed brick from the fireplace on the floor above that adds a rustic touch. Adjacent is a snug or optional fourth bedroom, boasting dual aspect windows, character beams, ample storage, and an en-suite shower room with heritage fixtures.

To the right, the home opens into a breathtaking open-plan living and kitchen area. This area is adorned with character beams and a frosted glass wall that enhances natural light. The bespoke kitchen merges contemporary design elements like a marble-effect quartz worktop on a large island, integrated state-of-the-art appliances including an Aga, Neff induction hob, Bosch dishwasher, and Neff double slide and hide oven, along with a walk-in pantry and utility room with garden access.

Ascending the oak staircase, you are led to an expansive open-plan landing with a view of the garden. The main living area, accessible from the landing, features a large brick-built inglenook fireplace, cozy carpeting, vaulted ceilings, and exposed beams. The principal bedroom suite includes a spacious en-suite with heritage units, ample wardrobe space, and overlooks serene garden views. An additional double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a laundry cupboard complete this floor.

The top floor hosts a galleried landing leading to a reception room currently used as an office and a large double bedroom with vaulted ceilings.

Swallow Barn is set on a sizeable plot with a garden that extends approximately 200ft. The grounds feature a patio area, a sprawling turfed lawn, a large pond to the right, and a secluded wooded area at the rear, offering a perfect blend of openness and privacy for relaxation or entertaining.

This property is a magnificent blend of heritage and modernity, ideal for those seeking a luxurious living space with character and style.
