Our client came to us with planning consent to convert a barn on the land that he owned adjacent to his home, having shrewdly purchased the farmyard some years earlier.
Set in beautiful surroundings, the client asked us to build a high-quality single storey, three-bedroom, three-bathroom house which he planned to move into. He wanted a home that was not only practical but also made the most of its stunning rural, waterfront location.
Large windows allow light to flood in and give wonderful views of both the surrounding woodlands and countryside, but also the nearby water too.
We worked with the client to create a lovely home, with an exterior in keeping with the building’s agricultural character – an important consideration when converting barns. The external wall finishes are cedar and zinc on a blue brick plinth, with a zinc roof. The windows and doors are grey painted aluminium.
Internally, there is a light and spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The client was keen to see some of the original barn structure, so we were able to keep the original concrete portal frames on display by adding insulation to the exterior rather than interior of the frame.
