A derelict Nissen hut that's been transformed into a luxury five-bedroom house at Braintree in Essex is on sale for £1.4 million.

Claire Benbrook's spent ten years renovating the site from a rusty iron shell and it's now an eco home.

"I was always a big fan of Grand Designs as so many people are nowadays and I thought it's an opportunity to do something amazing with these buildings if I got planning permission so it's been a long progress but got here in the end…. It's just amazing everyday I wake up to these incredible views and it's like being on holiday everyday. It's lovely."
