The unit on Smeeth Road, Marshland St James, near Wisbech, was converted under permitted development rights and sits within a generous plot, states the agent.

Changes in legislation in 2017 has meant it is easier to convert commercial buildings into homes as, depending on the former use, a builder doesn't always need planning permission.

The property has been started with plastering of internal walls and an entrance created.
