One of north Norfolk's 'finest' barn conversions is for sale for £1.1m
One of north Norfolk’s “finest” barn conversions has come up for sale, combining distinctive character features with huge wraparound gardens and uninterrupted field views.
Meadow Barn in Fring, near Heacham, is listed for sale for £1.1m and is described by estate agents Sowerbys as “one of the finest examples of a barn conversion north Norfolk has to offer”, ideal as both a family residence or “large holiday home."
The property has been extended by its current owner and combines rustic features with more contemporary living spaces, including a large entrance hall with a floor-to-ceiling window at the front.
The ground-floor includes an open-plan room, currently configured as a music room and sitting room, which are linked by a double-sided wood-burning stove.
The sitting area is particularly lovely and full of character, with a detailed beamed ceiling and exposed wooden floor. French doors, which open out to the front and rear, bring in lots of light.
Part of the extension now provides a further reception room, which also has doors leading into the garden. It has previously been used as a home office but could suit a range of uses.

The farmhouse-style kitchen is situated on the opposite side of the home and has a large brick fireplace with a range cooker inset and a range of classic Shaker-style units with work surfaces over the top.
Further storage can be found in the adjoining utility room and there is also a good-sized pantry.
To the rear, the kitchen opens into a spacious, light-filled dining room which has several Velux windows in the roof, as well as a large window and French doors leading into the garden.
The first floor is accessed by a staircase up to an attractive galleried landing, which leads on to the property’s five bedrooms and family bath and shower room.

The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room and is very spacious, with twin Velux windows offering countryside views and the second bedroom has an en suite too – this time including a bath, WC and basin.
The three remaining bedrooms are configured as two doubles and a single and share the family bath and shower room.
According to a spokesperson for estate agents Sowerbys, Meadow Barn “enjoys a wonderful sense of privacy, tranquility and seclusion” thanks to the surrounding countryside, which includes farmland to the side and good-sized gardens.
At the rear there is a raised garden, which is ideal for vegetable plots or chickens, plus several terraces, another seating area and a good-sized lawn.
There are also parking spaces for several vehicles, two electric car charging points on the private driveway, and a large, two-storey double garage with power and lighting. The mezzanine level could be used as office space.
