See inside this £1.15m barn conversion for sale with an ‘eco dome’ in the garden
A four-bedroom barn conversion set in around 1.4 acres of Suffolk countryside has come up for sale for £1.15m – complete with an 'eco dome' in the garden.
A spokesperson for estate agents David Burr, selling the home in Little Cornard, Sudbury, says it has been “attractively modernised", but still retains interesting character features. The result is a lovely, light-filled family home arranged over a single storey.
Accommodation includes three separate reception areas, a kitchen, separate utility area and four good-sized bedrooms – including the master, which also has an en suite.
The sitting room is a highlight, with a cosy fireplace and views over the grounds, and there is a good-sized kitchen, which is separated from the main dining space by a wood-topped breakfast bar.
The kitchen itself is well-fitted and finished with a matching range of base and wall units and an electric Aga range cooker, as well as space and plumbing for a dishwasher, American-style fridge/freezer and a useful pantry.

A drawing room was added to the property in 1979 and features windows to three sides, which offer lovely views over the neighbouring countryside, and it also features a wall of open-fronted bookshelves.
The space is bathed in lots of natural light thanks to its floor-to-ceiling glass panels, which open out on to a terrace, and there is a wood-burning stove set into a brick hearth in the centre.
The master bedroom has an en suite with a free-standing bath and a walk-in shower, and the three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom. There is also a separate cloakroom.
Outside, the property is surrounded by stunning grounds, including open lawns and mature and pretty gardens, and there are also numerous specimen trees.
Other areas of interest include an orchard – planted with apple, plum and damson trees – and an ornamental fish pond. There is also a summerhouse and a unique eco dome nestled into a flowerbed.
Elsewhere, the property benefits from plenty of off-road parking, as well as a cart lodge, and has a workshop fitted with electricity.

A useful outbuilding has already been converted into an office space and, like the house, is full of character, featuring exposed studwork and beams and parquet flooring.
It could continue to be used as an office or even be converted into further accommodation, subject to planning, as it connects through to a separate store room.
