Bloomfields have given their client the opportunity to convert a small redundant brick barn to a house. Whilst achieving such conversions are routine for Bloomfields, this case was slightly different in that the building proposed for conversion was only 25 square metres.

Or they may just wish to sell now that the value has been increased.
