At the heart of the beautiful Manor Farm Barns property is the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. This makes an exceptional family space and could also be magnificent for entertaining. A bespoke designer kitchen by Alexander Lewis has been fitted and comprises a range of base and wall units, with a light, contemporary, high gloss finish, quartz work surfaces and splashback, and an island and breakfast bar.

Separating the kitchen and dining part of the open-plan living space from the drawing room and relaxation area is an exquisite, bespoke staircase with oak treads and a glass balustrade. At the bottom of these are some bi-folding doors, which can be pulled right back on to the terrace. On the other side of this is a large space, where comfortable seating can be arranged around the modern wood-burning stove, which is set into a fireplace with a television point above, and where there is a stone hearth. Another set of French windows at this end of the main barn room opens on to the garden.

At the top of the beautiful staircase in the middle of the house is a light-filled galleried landing, with more glass balustrades and three windows on to the garden. The landing gives on to four sumptuous bedroom suites.The master suite is particularly special, featuring French windows on to a Juliet balcony and a bathroom with a free-standing, roll-top bath, as well as a large shower. One of the other bedrooms benefits from a Juliet balcony too, while another has a bathroom with a bath as well as a shower.

While the Manor Farm Barns property provides outstanding internal space, however, it is also its opportunities for outdoor living that are appealing. To the front of the house is a York stone terrace seating area, adjacent to which is a large cedar clad hot tub. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn and is enclosed by a combination of flint and brick walls and willow fencing.

A further terrace area to the side of the home features a fabulous outside entertaining space. This is an oak framed structure housing a covered seating area with power, lighting, outdoor heaters, barbecue, pizza oven and stainless steel sink. There is outdoor lighting and a sound system, making itperfect for parties.

Also outside is a brickweave driveway, which has ample parking space for multiple vehicles and which leads to a car port and garage. “Everything here is ready to be enjoyed,” Will points out. “The contents of the property can be sold with the house if the new owners wish, meaning they could come here to live or for holidays in this beautiful part of Norfolk as soon as they owned the home.”
