Unique opportunity to acquire a small complex of barns currently configured as two four bedroom homes on the edge of the sought after village of Bawdeswell in mid-Norfolk, set in delightful grounds and approached via a shared courtyard. The larger of the two properties enjoys a galleried hall and landing and farmhouse kitchen with Rayburn, with wonderful private grounds including spinney, and the smaller barn has a cottage garden and potential for letting, and has been let on a holiday lettings basis.
Good location within easy reach of Norwich and close to local shopping and transport facilities. Within striking distance of North Norfolk. Village primary school and within the catchment area of Reepham High School.
The Breeze Barns complex is currently configured as two attached barn conversions known as Breeze Barn and Breeze Barn South.
The larger of the two properties, namely Breeze Barn South, is a super property with wonderful grounds and the house is deceptive, with delightful private gardens at the rear. The barn offers generous accommodation with four bedrooms and should certainly be of great interest to a number of different types of buyer looking to acquire a character home. The ground floor rooms work extremely well and include a delightful sitting room and dining room with study and kitchen, and the whole is ready for immediate occupation.
The smaller of the two properties, Breeze Barn, offers equally well arranged accommodation and is a separate dwelling, approached as it is via a shared driveway from the road. The accommodation is well arranged on two floors and has been let on a holiday lettings basis for some time, being capable of producing up to £15,000 per annum, subject to occupancy rates. It could be reconfigured to achieve two smaller self-contained units or be applied to business purposes (subject to planning consent).
Both properties have separate services and are in immaculate order throughout and ready for immediate occupation.
Bawdeswell is situated in mid-Norfolk, about 3½ miles from Reepham and there are excellent local schools and shopping facilities in both these villages. The City of Norwich is about 15 miles away with all its shopping, transport and cultural facilities, as well as the mainline railway link to London Liverpool Street and the International Airport. The Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk coast are within striking distance. Here is an excellent opportunity to live tucked away in mid-Norfolk but within easy reach of the main areas of the county.
Proceed out of Norwich on the A1067 Fakenham Road, passing through Drayton and Lenwade. Continue towards Fakenham and at the Garden Centre on the main road turn right following signs into the village of Bawdeswell. Carry on along the B1145 road to the edge of the village and the property will be seen on the right hand side before leaving the village. There will be a sale board at the property.
