Location: Letheringsett, Holt, Norfolk, England

Price: £495,000 ($646,000)

A bright and modern conversion of a 19th century cottage and barn is for sale in Letheringsett, Norfolk, in East Anglia, England. While the original brick facade and shingle roof remain, the interiors are whitewashed, with exposed rough-hewn beams adding a little rustic charm.

On the ground floor of the 1,982-square-foot residence are two bedrooms, a study, bathroom, utility room, and a library with wood-burning stove (which can also be used as a bedroom), with concrete tile floors. It’s on the second floor that the house really shines. A short wooden staircase leads upstairs, where a vaulted and skylit open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area reside.

Here, a wall of exposed brick makes up the wall of an efficient, steel-applianced and butcher-block kitchen. On the opposite wall are two corner picture windows that offer views onto surrounding fields, with painted wide-plank boards making up the floors. A third bedroom with bath is also located on this level.

As for the property’s outdoor spaces, there is a lot to admire, including gardens, flower beds, grassy spaces, and a picnic area. There are multiple outhouses, too: a studio with a bathroom, an addition studio attached to a greenhouse, and a small storage shed.

Located four miles from the North Norfolk coast, it’s offered at £495,000, or approximately $646,000.
