This barn is located on the edge of the Cotswold hills, on the watershed for the Thames and Severn rivers. Set on the edge of a hill, it boasts sensational views out across a wooded valley, with an old droving track passes the barn.
This Grade II listed barn had been converted in the 1980s as a weekend bolt hole. When our clients found this barn it was in a derelict state, not having been lived in for several years, but they fell in love with the stunning location. Blake was asked to consider how this could be made into their dream family home.
We 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, which releases the original spaces in the barn as core living areas to be experienced to their full potential.
