Received details from agents for Green Farm Barn, a collection of farm buildings on around half an acre of field, with detailed planning permission for conversion to a 2500 sq. ft home. After months of looking at properties all over the county, we've found Green Farm Barn just 1 mile from home. The property is due to go on the market on Friday.

We visited the estate agents late this afternoon: discussed Green Farm Barn and other potential barn conversions in the area. Planning permission for barn conversions is extremely limited, so this is an increasingly rare commodity. We've arranged a viewing on Saturday.

Oldest barn on road-front is circa 1700.

Site consists of 3 buildings in an H shape:
this is roadside barn and centre stables.

Furthest from the road is this open-fronted brick barn,
planned to become the garage, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The stables (left) are brick-fronted and due to be the kitchen,
while the stone barn to the right will be two further bedrooms.

Viewed from the field are the brick barn on the left,
the stables in the centre and the old stone barn on the right,
which is due to become the dining room and lounge.

After numerous discussions with mortgage brokers we made an offer for Green Farm Barn. Agents told us two other offers had been made at the asking price, so we offered slightly higher.


Following several nervous days waiting for a decision, our patience has been rewarded by a call from the agents confirming our offer has been accepted.

To our great satisfaction a SOLD sign appeared on the Barn today. We visited the site again and met the vendors: they own the neighbouring Green Farm.
