Property Description

The Property

If you are dreaming of enjoying your morning coffee in the garden of your barn conversion, gazing across uninterrupted countryside out to sea; yet still in a village setting within walking easy walking distance of the village deli, great village pub and access to bracing beach and cliff walks.  Then Turnstone Barn could be the one for you.

Turnstone Barn is a three bedroom, semi-detached, brick & flint barn conversion, boasting lovely design features internally and a private garden with uninterrupted views across the countryside to the sea beyond.  Situated in the heart of the super popular village of Weybourne, yet away from the busy coast road and at the end of a pretty cul-de-sac of similar properties, it is a very pretty spot and it is possible to hear the sea from the garden.

On entering the barn there is a bright central hallway with exposed brick feature wall and doors off to the main open plan sitting / dining room, the kitchen, downstairs bedroom and family bathroom and stairs to the first floor bedrooms.

The star of the show at Turnstone Barn is the charming open plan sitting / dining room.  A bright and airy room with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, windows to the side of the property and velux windows bringing light in from above.  The sitting room area is slightly elevated from the dining area creating a feeling of separate spaces within the room.  There is a wood burning stove to cosy up in front of in the winter months and French doors out to the pretty conservatory and the garden beyond.

The conservatory is heated with a radiator and has French doors out to the garden, making it a useable garden room both in the cooler months and the summer.   There is space for sofa, reading chair and table and it is fully glazed, so no aspect of the commanding view at the bottom of the garden is lost.

Also, on the ground floor is a good sized kitchen with modern fitted units, integrated dishwasher, electric hob and a microwave & oven integrated next to the hob, so no need to bend down to get to the oven.  There is ample space for a fridge/freezer and this is a warm and inviting room with light from a window looking out to the side of the barn.

The downstairs double bedroom has a large window looking out to the rear of the barn and a built in wardrobe cupboard.  Another good sized and practical room.  Adjacent to this bedroom is the family bathroom, with a bath and mains pressure shower over, WC and wash hand basis.  There are also cupboards both in the bathroom and the hallway, handy for storage.

From the hallway the stairs lead up past another charming design feature, offering a view through the exposed beams in the sitting room and down in to the room itself, to a small landing at the top of the stairs. There are two bedrooms and a further storage cupboard on the first floor.

The upstairs double bedroom is a lovely double room with velux windows on both sides, looking out to the sea and to the rear of the barn, making it a bright oasis.  There is a very clever use of space in this bedroom to create en suite facilities.  There is a small shower room to one side of the door in to the bedroom and a toilet & sink on the other.  

The final bedroom is currently arranged as a single and is another bright room with natural light from the velux window looking syward and a window to the side.  

Outside

The garden to the rear of Turnstone Barn is hedged to either side, and wraps around the sides of the conservatory and takes full advantage of the view to the Sea at the far end.  It is a good sized garden with a lawn and patio area for outside table & chairs and BBQ for al fresco dining in the warm weather.  The garden is ideal for relaxing with a book and enjoying the view whilst listening to the distant waves rolling up to the shore beyond.  The garden is accessed either from the conservatory French doors or via a side gate next to the front door of the barn.

There is a shingled drive approaching the barn which belongs to next door, so parking for Turnstone Barn is on the cul-de-sac where the parking is unrestricted.  It is a short walk into the centre of the village and a stroll down to the pebble beach and walks out on the impressive cliffs between Weybourne and Sheringham.

Surrounded by fields, woodland and heathland, the area is perfect for walking and enjoying the countryside and coast. If walking isn’t your thing, you can also jump on the north Norfolk Railway Line steam train and go to Holt and Sheringham.

he Ship is a very popular pub, located in the centre of the village, within easy walking distance of Gullies. It is popular with both locals and visitors alike and serves very tasty food. There is also a charming village store / coffee shop, which stocks essentials, serves lovely coffee and freshly prepared snacks - perfect for when you are just back from the beach.

With no more than 600 people living here, there is a real sense of a local community and with so much to do and see at Weybourne, it really is a superb holiday destination at any time of the year.
