Plans have been submitted to convert redundant agricultural buildings into four houses, with an extra new build, on farmland in a village in south Suffolk.

Grove Farm, situated between Holbrook and Ipswich, could be converted into housing, in the plans submitted to Babergh District Council.

The plans would result in a mix of converting and extending the existing agricultural buildings, along with an extra building being built.

The additional building would be a four-bedroom house with a double garage and cartlodge.

The farm would retain some of the outbuildings, which have stood since 1937.

The houses will have parking spaces, road access and gardens and will be in keeping with the existing aesthetic at the farm.

The application states that the proposals provide a "comprehensive phase of improvement for the site, transforming neglected, outmoded farm buildings into modern family homes which take full advantage of the sites potential and outstanding location".

It also states that it is submitted in a "sensitive and sympathetic manner, respecting the existing farmhouse, agricultural setting and the wider landscape".
