Planning & Development
Grove Farm Barns
The Holkham Estate Company commenced work on the conversion of its former farm buildings at Grove Farm Barns, Warham into two homes in May 2016. The barns are located to the west of Warham village, some 2km east of Wells next the Sea.
‘Field Barn’ and ‘Brooksbank Barn’ are expected to be completed in September 2017. The main barn is dated 1810 with another group being added in 1884. The principal barn will be converted into one, 2 storey dwelling retaining some fine internal arches and the remainder of the group, former cattle sheds, will form the second dwelling. Both of these former farm buildings are built of red brick and although once thatched, by 1851, had pantile roofs.
The estate has partnered with Bryan Williams, a north Norfolk barn specialist, to convert these former agricultural buildings into highly sustainable and quality homes and the project is being overseen by local architect Ian Cable.
