Chance to build your own Grand Design home from timber-framed Suffolk barns at Borley Green.
If you, like me, are fascinated by those television programmes where ambitous people turn former farm or commercial buildings into dream homes, then turn away quickly.
Because, close to Long Melford there is a chance for someone with the house building experience to take on a Grand Design style project, at Purkis Farm Barns.
The barns stand in splendid isolation, on a quiet track off a B road, and are former agricultural barns, now being sold by David Burr for conversion into homes.
Steven Ray of David Burr estate agents said: “It is an absolutely stunning area. The barns are in splendid isolation, with lovely views.
“It is really isolated. I am expecting a lot of interest so we are asking for best offers.”
Despite its idyllic setting, it is only a five minute drive into busy Long Melford.
The former actricultural barns had been remarkabley well preserved with many of the timbers in excellent condition, which would be attractive features in the new homes created, he added.
The barns could be utilised as one large home, with planning already granted for this, or as the current consent would allow for two unique homes, of approximately 2,500sq ft and 1,900sq ft.
Both of these new homes would have a share of approximately 1.7 acres.
So this really could be a grand project for someone who has experience of self-building, or is in the construction industry and has relevant skills.
The property is on the market with a guide price of £350,000.
The agents are inviting “best offers” by noon on May 5, 2017
