Barn conversion – High Easter – Essex

Barn conversion – High Easter – Essex

Located in the south-east area of the Uttlesford District, midway between Margaret Roding, to the south, and High Easter to the north-east, the barn is set in rural surroundings and occupies an elevated prominent position in the landscape.

It is curtilage listed to the adjacent Grade II farm house. The barn comprises a single 17th century timber framed structure of five bays with a central midstrey to the rear. Externally it is finished with black timber feather edged boarding under a steeply pitched tiled roof.

The proposal provides for the conversion of the barn to a three-bedroom residential property. This involves the insertion of a new first floor over approximately half the floor area, retaining the middle section open to the rafters, providing a full height open entrance hall and dining area. In addition, the ground floor provides an open plan kitchen/breakfast area, sitting room, utility and cloak room. Three bedrooms are provided on the first floor, all with en-suite bathrooms.

Planning permission and Listed Building consent were granted in 2009.
