A fabulous, stand out conversion of a 19th century barn enjoying wonderful open rural views that extend out towards the coast. From the West facing Juliette balcony of the romantic master suite you can spot The Wash estuary on a clear day, and witness the most wonderful sunsets that this area of North Norfolk is renowned for.
Forming part of the exclusive Park Farm Barns complex set high above the village of Snettisham, and accessed via a private road, The Big Barn, quietly tucked away at the far end of the development, benefits from the largest plot and wonderful uninterrupted views. Built of local brick, with the addition of weather boarding reflecting its proximity to the sea, this superb barn is a luxurious, top-quality build. Inside you will find original exposed beams complemented by beautiful oak floors, doors and a statement open return staircase, a handmade fitted kitchen with granite work surfaces and four beautiful bedroom suites, including the impressive master bedroom with its fabulous hand-made contemporary four poster bed. The vast light-filled ground floor open-plan living area, with french doors opening to the garden, is divided by a feature double-sided wood burning stove supplementing the underfloor heating. Aspiring chefs and domestic goddesses will have no problem rustling up a memorable meal in the adjacent kitchen, again with a door to the garden - handy, should things get a bit steamy! It really is a thing of beauty and something to behold but practical too with an adjoining mud room/utility for dealing with the less glamorous side of life. Upstairs are the five well-appointed bedrooms (master king-size, two doubles, a twin and a bunk), and four smart bathrooms - all en-suite to the adult bedrooms. Outside, enjoy making the most of long summer days lazing and dining in the enclosed garden, pick an apple or two from the fruit trees, and relax while the children and dogs play safely.
The Big Barn is perfect for friends, a large family or two smaller ones to enjoy a really special holiday together, whatever your pleasure. It's an easy walk down to the village if you just want to grab a bite to eat, or maybe buy some provisions for 'dining in', and a short drive away from North West Norfolk's glorious coastline dotted with endless sandy beaches, nature reserves and amazing birdlife. Country house lovers will appreciate easy access to some magnificent local splendours - Sandringham House, Houghton Hall and Holkham Hall - with Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall a little further afield. If you are after some retail therapy, boutique shopping is available at Drove Orchards, Thornham Deli (both at nearby Thornham) and, of course, the pretty Georgian village of Burnham Market with its array of restaurants, shops, cafes and galleries.
For smaller groups, The Big Barn is also available with use of just three of the five bedrooms, accommodating up to six guests.
