The Balancing Barn accommodates up to eight guests in four bedrooms and offers a truly unique self-catering experience. Sitting (or should we say balancing!) amongst beautiful Suffolk countryside, not far from the Heritage coast, this impressive property has been ingeniously designed and has immense 'wow' factor both inside and out.
Perfectly placed in a peaceful haven alongside a nature reserve, The Balancing Barn affords lovely views over a small lake. It is all but invisible from the road and for a property that appears to be small at first glance, offers plenty of space once inside stretching to some thirty meters in length.
A design of architectural excellence, the property is covered in steel tiles that reflect the changing colours of the different seasons. Once inside you have the kitchen and dining area with lots of space for everyone to relax and then on to four en-suite bedrooms with a concealed staircase in the middle allowing guests to access the garden below. At the far end of The Balancing Barn is an impressive spacious living area with huge picture window which perfectly frames the trees.
All rooms afford floor to ceiling windows and roof lights letting the outside flood in, and a glass floor in the sitting room allow you to immerse yourself amongst the beauty of the natural surrounding environment from every angle.
This fantastic award winning barn is not just built to impress, it is also idyllically located being only three miles from the historic picturesque seaside village of Walberswick and within easy reach of popular Aldeburgh and Southwold. The area offers an abundance of attractions with pretty villages to explore, wonderful walks and cycling opportunities, excellent bird watching, castles to visit and traditional pubs and restaurants to enjoy long leisurely lunches.
