Brick-and-flint properties are a common sight across Norfolk – and this five-bed barn conversion in Swanton Morley shows off the style to great effect.

On the market with Sowerbys for £795,000, Pond Farm boasts more than 3,000 sq. ft of internal accommodation and sits on a plot of one acre (subject to survey).

Sowerbys say the property offers “highly versatile and beautifully designed living spaces”, as well as “meticulously landscaped gardens backing onto some delightful countryside”.

It also retains many original features such as exposed wooden beams, brickwork and vaulted ceilings.

The front door opens to a spacious entrance hall with doors to a music room, WC and garage, along with a staircase leading up to one of the bedrooms.

The hallway flows through to the generously sized kitchen/diner with Aga, adjoining utility room and bifold doors opening out into a secluded, walled courtyard garden which is ideal for alfresco dining.

Completing the ground floor are a study and the master bedroom, which has its own dressing area, a well-appointed en-suite bathroom and double doors out to the side garden.

Bedroom two is accessed from the staircase in the entrance hall and has scope to add an en suite in the future. The room sits above the integral double garage, which has potential for conversion into an annexe, subject to the necessary consents.

The remaining three bedrooms are accessed via a staircase from the sitting room. They are all well-proportioned and served by the family bathroom.

Pond Farm enjoys beautifully landscaped and manicured gardens offering “a tranquil escape” and providing “ample space for outdoor activities and enjoyment”, according to Sowerbys.

The rear of the property has an open aspect allowing sun to flood the gardens throughout the day.

To the side of the property is the walled courtyard garden, with lawn and well-stocked borders wrapping around to the side and opening up to the rear to create several areas to enjoy.

Behind the property is a further large garage/workshop and covered wood-store. There is also a potting shed and glasshouse for keen gardeners.
