The 15th Century property and associated outbuilding are Listed Grade II as a property of architectural and historic interest being converted in 2010 by well renowned architect, David Cumming from a former Norfolk five bay threshing barn into a most attractive five-bedroom family home.
Black Barn has been meticulously planned from the ground up with a range of stunning additions and quality fittings. The property benefits from a new roof across the whole barn which has been fully insulated whilst protecting the visual atmospherics of the properties exposed beams and original features.
The property is approached into an open plan entrance hall which enjoys access to the principal ground floor rooms. A central fireplace acts as the focal point between the sitting room and dining room with both rooms positioned to create a superb space to entertain. the kitchen breakfast room benefits from a range of integrated appliances with a central island; the floor to ceiling windows allows plenty of natural light to flood through the kitchen and access is enjoyed out to a terrace via bi-fold doors.

There are two staircases to Black Barn, the main staircase spirals up to a wonderful landing area which could be used as an upper sitting room/dining area. The pitch of the roof is beautifully proportioned with three Velux windows positioned to enjoy the views over the gardens and paddocks.
