The Street, Barney, Fakenham NR21

A 2 bedroom extended period cottage with a substantial 1 bedroom single storey annexe encompassing beautiful 1/4 acre gardens (sts) with countryside views.

Barn Owl Cottage is an extended 2 bedroom, 3 reception room semi detached period cottage with ample driveway parking and workshop plus the additional bonus of a detached one bedroom single storey annexe alongside sharing the same driveway access.

Barn Owl Cottage has ground floor accommodation comprising an entrance porch, cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room/snug, study and a conservatory. Upstairs, a spacious landing leads to the principal bedroom with adjoining dressing room, the 2nd bedroom and a family bathroom.

The annexe has an entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting/dining room, conservatory and an en suite bedroom.

Barney is a small rural village 10 miles inland from the north Norfolk coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and situated approximately half-way between the market town of Fakenham and the lovely Georgian town of Holt, both of which offer a full range of shops, schooling and eateries.

Closer to hand are the thriving neighbouring villages of Melton Constable and Briston where there are amenities including village stores/Post Office, doctors surgery, butcher, bakery, garages, community centre, playing fields and a primary school. More immediately, the 3 villages of Barney, Fulmodeston and Croxton come together for many club and social activities, while Barney has its own playing field and cricket club.
