Norfolk and Suffolk have a vast amount of agricultural land and beautiful open countryside. Within this there are a number of redundant barns and farm buildings which are no longer viable for agricultural use due to various reasons, such as changes in farming technology, and these buildings have often been neglected and fallen into disrepair.
However, due to the planning changes with Class Q permitted development, barns have now become increasingly popular for conversions into dwellings to allow people to make use of these redundant buildings and live in the countryside where new development would not normally be permitted.
Durrants has an agricultural heritage dating back to 1853 and we have considerable experience in designing barn conversions ensuring detail and attention is focused on the historic fabric of the building. We utilise the original features, spaces and heights to create impressive interiors or, alternatively, with more recent structures, a contemporary approach to the conversion can often be very successful; either way we can create a stunning individual home ideal for modern living.
