Greenfields is a stunning three bedroom semi-detached barn conversion, situated in a raised position with commanding field views. The beautifully arranged and immaculately presented accommodation is complemented by charming internal timber frame with associated studwork, which is understood to date back to 1828. Externally the timber frame is set upon a brick and flint base, with painted weatherboard clad elevations.
By walking through the garden room, you are welcomed into the barn by a double-height and vaulted reception hallway, which offers a real sense of light and space with a solid oak staircase to first floor level. To either side of this wonderful room are two further reception rooms, namely the sitting room and dining room. Of particular note is the cosy sitting room, which has a feature fireplace with a tiled hearth, bressumer beam and brick facing. The exceptional kitchen / breakfast room is fitted with a high quality fully equipped kitchen enhanced by oak work surfaces and integrated 'Bosch' appliances. The room has wooden flooring and ample room for a breakfast table. From here a doorway steps down into the utility with further space for appliances and a useful pantry cupboard. Beyond is a rear lobby and refitted cloakroom. Stairs rise from the reception hall up to the charming galleried landing, which has an array of exposed timbers and beams - of which some are marked with the date of 1828. From the landing steps lead up to three double bedrooms and a refitted family bathroom. The bathroom comprises a roll top bath, large shower cubicle, vanity hand wash basin and wc. An en-suite shower room with adjoining dressing area and wardrobes has recently been added to benefit the master bedroom.
The barn boasts a large slightly sloping plot, which faces due South. On approach, a five bar gate opens onto a sweeping gravel driveway which provides extensive turning space and vehicle parking. Situated around the driveway are three excellent outbuildings which include a detached garage (17'5'' x 11'), a brick and flint workshop (8'6'' x 5'5'') and a further outbuilding/office (23'8'' x 10'4''). Subject to relevant planning consents, these outbuildings could be used for a number of different purposes from a studio space, to an annexe. Attached to the house are two raised sun terraces which can be accessed from the garden room. These face South and due to the proximity to the barn would be excellent entertaining spaces. At the back of the barn is an enclosed lawn garden with conifer hedge to the rear boundary, providing a good degree of privacy.
Greenfields is nestled in a raised position enjoying lovely un-interrupted field views to a southern aspect. The property is set back from the single track country lane, offering privacy and seclusion, yet being only a short walk away from the main village of Garboldisham. Smallworth is a desirable and secluded hamlet located next to the village of Garboldisham. Although the hamlet has no immediate facilities, further amenities can be found in Garboldisham including a shop, public house, village hall and primary school. The neighbouring market town of Diss has a wide range of shops and amenities, with its own mainline train station with a direct link to London Liverpool Street station. Further afield you can find more facilities in the neighbouring cities and towns of Norwich, Bury St Edmunds & Ipswich.
From Diss head towards Thetford on the A1066 passing through the villages of Roydon, Bressingham and South Lopham. After leaving South Lopham, take the next left hand turn 'Smallworth Lane'. Proceed further down the lane taking the next left. The property will be found further along on the left hand side.
The property is offered subject to and with the benefit of all rights of way, whether public or private, all way leaves, easements and other rights of way whether specifically mentioned or not.
