Design Brief

Our client wanted to make internal alterations to this listed farm house, together with changes to the barn outbuildings.

This included opening up between the kitchen and dining areas in the farm house. The existing cellar is to made into a wine cellar, with the loft space also to be explored for potential conversion into further accommodation. 

The outbuildings consisted of two barns, with a third barn to be reconstructed. The barns are to have a pool, gym, sauna and steam room with glass frontage. Another with a games room/bar and sunken cinema room.

Further Description

Another gorgeous listed property that we’re excited to restore, renovate and extend. All of the works will respectively sit within the grounds of the current property and land. To do so, we will cleverly and thoughtfully choose materials.

This property consists of a farmhouse and two barn outbuildings; currently, the outbuildings are only used as storage. The way the main farmhouse is designed doesn’t best suit a modern family, which the client is looking to solve.

We will add a kitchen extension to open up the living area to combine the kitchen and dining space. We will also be converting the existing cellar into a wine cellar. However, a large proportion of our work will be the reconstruction of an old barn which was demolished before the current owners.

The new barn will join the farmhouse and will also be parallel to a brand new swimming pool that specialist contractors are installing. The new barn will form a new pool house, bar and gym. Not only will the pool house join the main farmhouse, but it will also be connected by a glass passage to one of the existing barns, forming a ‘U’ around the gravel driveway.
