About this property

Brown & Co offers a partly converted barn of approximately 4370sqft, an adjacent agricultural barn and land of approximately 14.8 acres. The dwelling is situated in an impressive location East of Swaffham on the edge of the village of Sporle.

Wolferton Barn (circa 1850) is a handsome, traditional Norfolk barn with adjoining single storey former piggery in a slightly elevated position, surrounded by farmland, with distant views over the village of Sporle. The property is situated approximately 2 miles from the centre of the thriving market town of Swaffham which is roughly equidistant between the town of King's Lynn and fine city of Norwich. The property has very easy access to the A47, a main route for both into, and out of Norfolk and rail links at Downham Market for Ely, Cambridge and London. The beautiful Norfolk coast is within easy reach. The property was purchased a number of years ago by the current owners who have been converting the property with meticulous attention to detail in the planning and execution to its current state, reusing the origin materials wherever possible to retain the character of the original farm buildings.

The main barn is a two storey Norfolk brick building with original full height openings.
When completed the property will comprise; double height entrance area with gallery over, central dining area with bifold doors to south facing garden and French doors to rear, a sitting room area with double sided wood-burning stove with brick fireplace, a kitchen and walk in pantry. There is also permission for a sun room. Upstairs has vaulted ceilings with a large central mezzanine with views over the surrounding countryside, a master bedroom with dressing area and ensuite and two further bedrooms with family bathroom. Solar thermal panels are installed to the south facing roof. Both barns are partially converted, all exterior windows/doors are installed and constructed from oak, the roof is complete with conservation rooflights and fully insulated to far exceed building regulations.

Attached to the main barn is the former piggery which provides further accommodation either as an extension to the main dwelling or as a self-contained barn of its own, particularly useful for multi-generation living or possible income stream in the form of AirBnB or similar. The piggery consists of a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area, three further bedrooms( two with French doors to the courtyard garden) and provision for three bath/shower rooms, large boot room, utility/laundry and plant room. The majority of the work has taken place in the old piggery where the project has underfloor heating installed, fully insulated and plaster boarded, electrical works, some plumbing and partially plastered. The exterior features brick and larch wood cladding. The agent holds some internal photos of the works. Inspections by building control are up to date and architect certificates for all works carried out so far. Access from the road is via a driveway, this leads to the front of the barn where there is provision for parking and access to the barn. Undoubtedly the property, and such impressive surroundings will be one of the finest in the area when completed.

Also on site is a large agricultural barn of approximately 400m2 providing useful, substantial, storage space and potential for a number of purposes.

The entire plot is approximately 14.78 acres in size. This comprises the barn and immediate surrounding garden of approximately 1 acre and two fields. The first field is approximately 4.1 acres and is set meadow and cultivated with a variety of Norfolk heritage fruit trees. The owners have planted a perimeter of native broadleaf trees and hornbeam hedging and created beautiful pathways and various areas to enjoy. The second field is approximately 9.61 acres and is used for hay. The long distance footpath Peddars way and the Nar valley way are within minutes of the property.
