A bright 5-bed barn conversion with outbuildings in 2 acres of grounds and with views of Norwich

Petersfield Barn is a substantial detached period barn principally of brick construction under pantile roof which was converted in 1990 and extended and improved in 2009. The property benefits from light and spacious accommodation throughout whilst retaining period features such as exposed beams and timber framing. The barn forms a u-shape thus creating an attractive south facing courtyard which overlooks a flint lined horse pond. Inside at the centre of the property is a spacious sitting room with freestanding wood burning stove, which then leads through into an open plan kitchen dining room, both with French doors out to the south facing courtyard and with under floor heating via ground source heat pump. Accommodation to the west provides an entrance hall, two double bedrooms, bathroom, boot room and garden room with sliding doors to the gardens on the north side. At the eastern end of the property is a spacious music room, bedroom with en suite and upstairs the principal bedroom, another double bedroom with en suite shower room and a family bathroom.

This property has 2.35 acres of land.


Outside, the property is set centrally within its grounds and is approached via a gravel driveway with turning area to the east of the property that leads to a parking area for numerous vehicles. Adjacent to this is an extensive range of outbuildings covering over 2,000 sq/ft which have a wealth of potential for providing further ancillary accommodation or possibly holiday lets (subject to necessary planning permissions). This area could also be perfect for an outdoor swimming pool complex. To the south of the barn is a lawn area with vegetable patch and fruit cage. To the north is a large terrace alongside shrub and plant beds and adjacent to an open paddock that is left to meadow and a large pond which is spring fed. Looking north there are wonderful views of the Norwich skyline which includes the Cathedral.


Petersfield Barn is situated in the rural hamlet of Upper Stoke, just outside the popular village of Stoke Holy Cross about 4 miles to the south of Norwich. Stoke Holy Cross has a number of amenities including primary school and a shop with post office. The village enjoys excellent eateries with The Wildebeest which is a well-regarded public house with restaurant and Stoke Mill restaurant – both award winning. The area is surrounded by unspoilt rural countryside yet is within easy access of Norwich – John Lewis is roughly 10 minutes away. The Cathedral city of Norwich has a vibrant business community and is the regional centre providing excellent schooling in both the public and private sector, as well as shopping with John Lewis only 15 minutes away, leisure and cultural facilities. There is a mainline railway station to London Liverpool Street and an expanding airport to the north of the city.


From Norwich, head south on City Road and continue onto Long John Hill. At the traffic lights, go straight over the ring road, under the railway line and take the first exit at the mini roundabout onto Stoke Road. Follow this road over the River Tas and the Southern Bypass and after 1 mile take a left turn upon entering Caistor St Edmund onto Caistor Lane. Follow the road around a left turn and after 0.7 miles take a right hand turn onto High Ash Lane. Follow this road for 0.5 miles as it becomes Valley Farm Lane and Peterfield Farm can be found on the right hand side. Head straight past the turning circle and pond to parking at the rear of the property.
