Whether buyers are downsizing in later life or moving out of town to start a family, barn conversions are top of the charts on a price-per-square-foot basis, despite being much less expensive than manor houses, parsonages and farms. They tend to be light-filled and spacious and are popular for their blend of traditional and modern style.
‘Barns are a blank canvas that can be transformed into the buyer’s ideal home quite easily,’ says Tim Hayward, director of the Burnham Market branch. ‘It’s very rare that a converted barn is on the market for long. Last April, we marketed four on the Holkham estate and, just four days after the open day, all four sales had been agreed.’
