With origins dating back to the 13th century, and listed grade II as being of specific architectural and historical interest, this incredible conversion of a huge timber frame barn offers a splendid level of beautifully arranged and particularly versatile accommodation extending to more than 3600sqft. The property displays a wealth of wonderful and original features including massive timbers, vaulted ceilings and full height glazing, creating a wonderfully light atmosphere, whilst complemented by private gardens, stunning countywide views and a very sought after village location.

In more recent years, the barn has been further improved for the current owners and now provides a wonderfully spacious home of immense personality with accommodation currently in brief comprising: entrance door opening to entrance hall with door leading to a utility room with fitted cupboards and sink. The kitchen breakfast room has excellent ceiling height, overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of units providing extensive cupboard and drawer space beneath preparation surfaces and complemented by built-in appliances. The main reception hall is an impressive light and airy space with part vaulted ceilings displaying a wealth of original huge timbers, full height glazing overlooking the garden, wooden staircase to galleried landing, door to a cloakroom and further door leading to a delightful garden room with large windows and double doors to garden. The dining room has exposed timbers and enjoys far reaching views to the front across open countryside as does the study. The huge 34ft sitting room provides plenty of space and retains a wealth of exposed timbers, fireplace with wood burner and windows to front and rear affording splendid views.

From the dining room a door leads to a superb 25ft family room again with particularly high ceilings, windows to front, cloakroom and kitchenette (therefore ideal as an adjoining annexe) with double doors opening to a studio/annexe or ground floor fifth bedroom.

On the first floor is a spacious galleried landing with an array of huge timbers and high ceilings. The master suite is a superb sized bedroom with built in cupboards, window providing stunning countryside views, dressing room with range of deep wardrobe cupboards and a large walk in cupboard. The en-suite bathroom is luxuriously appointed having been recently redesigned and refitted with a stylish suite including whirlpool bath and separate shower enclosure. The three further guest bedrooms are all good doubles, with high ceilings, many exposed beams and a family bathroom completes the accommodation.

The property is approached through electric gates leading to a driveway creating vehicle parking, turning space and access to a double garage with power and lighting connected. The walled gardens are mostly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and provide the occupants with a good degree of privacy, whilst enjoying a southerly aspect.

This fine home enjoys a splendid setting near the village church and Whepstead Hall, opposite fabulous open countryside, whilst situated in the centre of this most sought after Suffolk village. Whepstead is situated approximately 5 miles to the South West of Bury St Edmunds and its excellent range of everyday facilities this historic market town has to offer. Convenient access is gained to the main road networks and London via the M11 Motorway.

When entering Whepstead from the direction of Bury St Edmunds, the entrance to the barn (and adjacent barn and Whepstead Hall) will be found a short distance further on the right just after Church Hill.
