An impressive eco-friendly barn conversion with a self-contained wing has come up for sale in Burgh near Aylsham.

Oak Tree Barn, which is listed at a guide price of £795,000, is described by agents Savills as an "imaginative" home, and part of a small collection of barns surrounded by countryside. Perhaps unexpectedly, it also occupies a unique location overlooking some of the county's unspoilt water meadows.

The property was converted by the current owners and offers the spacious living accommodation you'd expect in a property of this scale, which offers over 6,260 sq ft of living space and includes a double height vaulted entrance and a large dining hall with impressive fireplace.

Other highlights include the sitting room, which features a double-sided woodburner, and a large country-style kitchen/breakfast room with Butler sink and bespoke fitted units.

The property has been designed with 'green' credentials in mind and, as a result, includes a bio-mass heating system and solar panels.

Outside, Oak Tree Barn is approached by a long driveway, which it shares with neighbouring properties before leading to a private entrance and a gravelled parking area stretching as far as the self-contained wing. 

The plot itself extends to just over half an acre and includes mature gardens, mainly laid to lawn, and a more formal area to the south-east, featuring flower beds and a paved terrace and enjoying gorgeous views of the water meadows to the south. A number of specimen trees mark the boundary.
