The Ochre Barn in Norfolk

House Tour: The Ochre Barn in Norfolk

Do you prefer living in the city or out in the countryside or by the sea?

I grew up in a tiny village in the countryside and since I left home, I’ve always been a city girl at heart.
However, having recently spent more time working in France from our holiday home and having gone for a few morning walks by the beach, I started thinking what if…
They are still things that drive me crazy like taking the car to run any errands whereas in London, I just walk or cycle + shops are open all the time but I guess there are upsides and downsides on each account.

If I was to live in the countryside, I would love to live in a big modern space like the Ochre Barn in Norfolk designed by Carl Turner Architects and achieved on a budget of £400,000 in 2010.

The original brickwork of the building was maintained but the whole space was turned into a multi-purpose development to host a retreat, residential quarters and a workspace.
