DESCRIPTION

Kingfisher Barn is a detached thatched property which dates back to the 16th century. Works started on the conversion in the early nineties and took nearly a decade to complete. What you see has been a wonderful family home for years which now requires new owners.
The restoration was done sympathetically to the standing structure; this includes exposed beams, wooden panelling, natural stone and wood flooring. The property possesses an almost organic feel which blends into the natural beauty of its surroundings. The outside views are over a large duck pond and lawn with arable field and horse paddock views beyond. However, this doesn't mean creature comforts have been forgotten with oil fired central heating throughout, along with under floor heating in sitting room, en-suite and kitchen.
This property comprises of 4 bedrooms; 3 along one wing with the principal bathroom. The master bedroom is upstairs with an en-suite bathroom. The main focal point of this property is the glorious sitting room, with 5.6m high ceiling, exposed beams, panelling with inset door, large windows and doors leading out onto the garden. The kitchen is the hub of any home and with solid oak eye and base level units and granite worktops, this does not disappoint. This again offers views directly over the garden and pond.

LOCATION

Kingfisher Barn is located on Abbey Road which is a quiet country lane just outside the Suffolk village of Flixton. There is easy access to the vibrant Waveney Valley Market Town of Bungay which offers amenities including schools, surgeries, golf course, local shops and high street chains.

OUTSIDE

Set back from the lane, the entrance to the barn is via double wooden gates which lead to a gravelled courtyard area with parking for numerous vehicles. To one side of the courtyard are wooden outbuildings which are currently used for storage.
Walking around to the rear garden you are greeted by mature trees including fruit trees and a magnificent established willow standing at the edge of the feature duck pond with decked seating area. Towards the rear of the pond is a rockery with feeder pond helping maintain a gentle flow of water. The lawned area with summer house offers an area to sit and enjoy your day or evening, taking in the near garden or the further rural views beyond.
