Property Description

The Property

Riverside is a stunning four bedroom period barn conversion, tucked away on a small exclusive development of a handful of barns in the popular village of South Creake.  This single storey barn has a wealth of traditional features including beautiful exposed brickwork internally and vaulted, beamed ceilings with exposed trusses. The open plan kitchen /diner opens into a charming sitting room with all the living space flooded with light from French doors and windows on both sides of the property.

On entering Riverside you have a large entrance hall with bedrooms arranged off and along a corridor lined with full height windows to the right and the living accommodate off to the left.

The large open plan kitchen / diner features a lovely vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and trusses and French doors off to the front and back gardens.  The kitchen is extremely well equipped with an AGA, central island, range of cupboards and pantry.  Off this is the utility room with a side door to bring in muddy feet or sandy paws.

The sitting room is accessed through large double doors from the kitchen and has a lovely cosy feel, despite being quite a large room.  There is lovely exposed brickwork and the beams and trusses continue through into this room.  There is a wood burning stove to warm toes in the winter months and French doors to the rear garden and a further door out to the front garden.

The master bedroom lies at the opposite end of the house to the sitting room and the exposed brickwork features here on the opposite gable end wall.  This is a stunning room, very spacious with French doors and full height windows bringing natural light from the front of the property.  There are two double fitted wardrobe and a lovely en suite featuring a bath with shower over, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Along the corridor from here is the second double bedroom, another good sized room with fitted wardrobes and window out to the rear.  Adjacent to this bedroom is a shower room.

Across from the main entrance are the two remaining bedrooms.  Another good sized double bedroom with a window to the rear and the final bedroom, which is currently used as a home office.  Between these two bedrooms is the family bathroom, featuring a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, loo and heated towel rail.

Outside

There is parking to the front of Riverside for two cars and further parking for guests in the communal parking area. There are gardens to the front of the barn on both sides of the main entrance and a lovely garden to the rear.  The garden area in front of the master bedroom leads to the communal pond on one side.  

The garden to the front of the kitchen and sitting room is fully enclosed with mature hedging and fencing around and gates to the parking area at one end and the rear garden at the other.  Perfect for four legged friends to explore without having to be monitored. 

The rear garden is West facing, so perfect for sitting in the evening for al fresco dining and watching the sunset.  This garden is bordered by the meandering creek that forms part of the River Burnham and looks out over the neighbouring farm and countryside beyond.

Riverside is currently a much loved second home but it would have fantastic potential as a holiday let.  Situated in a popular village and offering all the charm of a period barn conversion it would attract considerable attention as a holiday home for guests visiting North Norfolk.

Barn conversions are particularly popular with holiday guests and being single storey as well means that Riverside will be attractive to guests of all ages and would work perfectly for large family, multi-generational holidays.  The enclosed garden is extremely useful for guests travelling with pets and high standard of the accommodation throughout would make Riverside a very popular choice with guests.

There are a number of local agencies who can manage both the marketing and management of changeovers for owners who do not live locally.
