This barn is located on the edge of the Cotswold hills, on the watershed for the Thames and Severn rivers. It is set on the edge of a hill with views out across a wooded valley and an old droving track passes the barn.
This Grade II listed barn had been converted in the 1980’s as a weekend bolt hole. When our clients found this barn is was in a derelict state not having been lived in for several years but they fell in love with the stunning location. We were asked to consider how this could be made into their dream family home.
It took time to define a dream family home with them but we think we have cracked it for them!
We have worked with the landscape architect and plantsman Chris Beardshaw in developing a proposal for a new extension off this barn and a scheme to heal the neglected landscape. The extension is designed to sit in harmony with the old barn and ensure that it retains the main focal point of the landscape.
The extension houses all the bedrooms, this releases the original spaces in the barn allowing the original spaces to be experienced.
