A modern barn with permission for conversion in a remarkable location.
Approval has been granted for the change of use under permitted development from an agricultural building to a dwelling house (application no 19/01055/PNCOU) granted by Brentwood Borough Council. The building is an open-fronted Dutch-style steel-framed barn which occupies a generous plot including a large natural pond surrounded by a copse.
When converted the property will offer versatile four bedroom, two storey accommodation which includes a sizeable principal bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite shower room. On the ground floor a spacious reception hall will include the stairs to first floor. To the left the area has been designed primarily for open-plan living with the sizeable kitchen/breakfast room open-plan to a living and dining area. At the front of the barn will lie a utility room and ground floor cloakroom, whilst at the opposite end is the more formal living accommodation, a family room and home office. The barn is designed with tall, full-height glazing to bathe the property in natural light and the elevations clad in zinc and vertical timber will provide an appealing contemporary country property designed for 21st century living.
The barn is located along a very attractive tree-lined lane in an area popular with horse riders, cyclists and walkers.
The site adjoins open farmland providing a lovely outlook over the countryside.
What a great opportunity to transform this unused Dutch barn into a cutting edge and unique family home. I cannot wait to see the end result.Stephen White
