The barn is located on the Holkham estate, with no neighbours for miles, and has full planning permission to be transformed into a 3,000 sqft designer home.

It is perfect for a celebrity who wants to live in privacy or for anyone who wouldd rather have peace and quiet on their doorstep than noisy neighbours.

This one, for sale with Savills, however is rare because it stands completely on its own. Plans include open plan living space around a south facing courtyard, partly walled and with a granary.

There is also a proposed reception hall with a double height, vaulted ceiling and window open through to a sitting room and a south facing wing with a fully glazed room with sliding doors for a massive kitchen/dining/living area and bedrooms overlooking the panoramic countryside.

Outside, the grounds of 0.8 of an acre are a blank canvas for landscaping, and include a granary which could be used as storage or converted to a studio or similar subject to planning.

Ben Rivett, associate director, Savills, said: “It’s an absolute corker of a barn, surrounded by nothing but countryside, a complete gem.”
