This striking Suffolk barn conversion is in a tucked-away rural setting, on the edge of Rushmere St Andrew, yet convenient for the county town of Ipswich and for east Suffolk.
This barn conversion has panoramic views across the countryside of the Fynn Valley and there is easy access to a fine network of footpaths and bridleways into the valley too.
Hill Farm Barn is a substantial property, a recently converted traditional Suffolk barn which now offers flexible accommodation, incorporating an annexe wing, together with the adjoining four bedroom Granay Barn which provides more space which has a variety of potential uses including additional accommodation, home office, or hobby or living space - making it ideal for multi-generational living.
It could also be used as general rental/holiday letting space to produce an income for the owners.
Jonathan Penn, of agents Jackson-Stops & Staff, said: “This is a big barn - a home with a real wow factor. Inside it has lots of character including a fully vaulted main hall, with galleries.
