A barn conversion with an award-winning outdoor space, set in a coastal village near North Walsham, is up for sale for a £1 million guide price. 

Grange Farm Barn is an ‘upside-down’ conversion on a private road in Bacton, with bedrooms on the ground floor and an open-plan kitchen and living space on the first floor. 

“The conversion showcases a mix of contemporary spaces with original beams, brick, flint and lime features,” said selling agent Starkings & Watson. 

The barn has been designed to take advantage of views of the countryside and the sea beyond. 

On the ground floor of the property, there’s an entrance porch, with space for coats and shoes, which leads to the impressive hallway.

To the right of the hallway is the principal bedroom, which has bi-folding doors to a private side terrace, a large walk-in dressing room and an en-suite bathroom.  

There are three further bedrooms to the other side of the hallway. 

The first, which has a curved feature wall, is currently used as a home office. 

Adjacent to this is a bedroom with double doors onto the side garden and an en-suite shower room.

The final bedroom is split into two sections, with one area used as a home office and another, beyond a feature brick archway, as the bedroom. This room features an en-suite bathroom with a roll-top bath and sliding doors leading to the rear garden. 

A dining area, which is open from the hallway and includes bi-folding doors to the rear garden, a utility room and a WC complete the ground floor.

The double staircase in the hallway leads to the stunning, open-plan kitchen/living space. 

This vast area features vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and brickwork and engineered oak flooring. 

The modern kitchen offers a range of fitted units, solid laminate worktops and integrated appliances including an oven, induction hob, dishwasher and space for a large double fridge/freezer.

At one end of the first floor is the sitting room, which features a suspended, rotating Decoflame bio-ethanol fire and doors onto a side balcony. 

This floor also features doors onto a balcony/sun terrace to the front of the barn, with far-reaching views of the countryside and sea.

Outside, the barn is approached by a sweeping shingle driveway leading to off-road parking. There is lapsed planning permission for a double car port, which a future owner could apply for. 

There’s a large area of lawn flanked by three acer globosa trees and gated access to the rear gardens on both sides of the property.

To the side and rear, there are secluded gardens with an abundance of shrubs and fruit trees, including apples, pears, plums, cherries, apricots, peaches, gooseberries and figs. The current owner has said he will find it quite a wrench to leave the shrubs behind. 

In the rear garden, there’s also a greenhouse, shed and raised vegetable beds.

The private terrace, off the principal bedroom, is the award-winning part of the garden. KT Lake Paving and Landscaping won Best Large Patio for the space at the Brett Approved Installer Awards in 2015. 

This peaceful haven includes a large paved area interspersed with planting, as well as a terrace – an ideal space for a morning coffee.
