Constructed of a timber frame and brick base with weather-boarded elevations, the barn has a number of historic features.

They include a wealth of exposed beams and stud work throughout the main barn section of the property as well as wooden, slate and tiled floors.

Property agent Tom Orford, Savills Suffolk residential sales team director, said: “Set back from the road with delightful open views over the surrounding countryside, Chelford Barn is an impressive conversion.

“Of particular note is an extension completed in 2012 beyond the breakfast room, with a glazed link leading into a stunning full-height reception room with underfloor heating and bi-fold doors to the gardens.”

In the heart of the barn is a semi-vaulted hall which opens through to a sheltered terrace overlooked by a galleried landing.

The front section of the barn comprises two reception rooms with a raised wood burner in the sitting room next to a modern kitchen.

There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a part galleried stair leading to the first floor landing.

This gives access to two vaulted bedrooms on either side of the landing, each with en-suite bathrooms.

The lawned gardens amount to just under one acre and back on to countryside on two sides, with a terrace from the sitting room to the front.

To the rear of the property is a large enclosed courtyard terrace with a pergola and garden store shed.
