Although this home was once a barn — and still retains the wooden beams, exposed brick walls and stone flooring — it has the grandeur of a church inside thanks to the double-height ceilings. Unlike many chapels, however, there's no shortage of natural light here, thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling windows dotted about the walls. When the sun goes down, there are elegant pendant lights hanging down and subtle under counter lights in the sleek kitchen for illumination. At the middle of the main space is a large dining table, which gives meals a sense of occasion, but there's also seating at the kitchen island for less formal moments. Outside, there's a large enclosed garden complete with alfresco seating, a fire pit and a barbecue on the patio, as well as a sprawling lawn and a cosy spot to sit underneath the pergola. The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty starts just ten minutes away in the car, while the famous Sutton Hoo excavation site is a quarter of an hour's drive.
