Wheatsheaf barn was built in 1715 and carefully restored by the owners in 2011 to create a stylish contemporary interior within the original fabric, using quality oak joinery and luxury fittings. The 60 foot open plan living area offers very spacious accommodation with a dramatic double height area. A feature of the property is the upstairs landing sitting room with its folding doors opening onto the outside balcony and views over the river. The river bank and local beach is a ten minute walk away through a couple of fields and you can walk both directions of the Essex Way from the house. The barn is situated on a very quiet lane leading up to the traditional farming village of Wrabness with its ancient church. The village is also the site of the house designed by the potter Grayson Perry. There is a community shop, together with a licensed cafe which is open at weekends.
