8 beautiful barn conversions on the market right now
Ooh, what is it about the combo of an exposed beam and an open-plan room that sets our hearts aflutter? If you're in the market for a barn conversion, here are eight stunners currently up for grabs
How does living in an award-winner sound? This eco-luxe barn conversion in Stoke Holy Cross, just south of Norwich, won South Norfolk Council’s Design Award back in 2005 – and looking at it, it’s clear to see why! A four-bed, three-bath stunner set in 1.45 acres, The Old Barns looks out onto a wildflower meadow, woodland and wildlife pond, and uses solar energy for its (considerable) mod cons.
The rural village of Reed, Herts is home to this three-bed, single-storey barn conversion. Here there are two vaulted, open-plan reception rooms (including a wood burner in the living room), a cozy oak kitchen filled with Gaggenau tech, a gym and three bedrooms with excellent views of the sunny garden and fruit and veg plot.
Period property lovers, this one’s for you! Saxley Hill Barn outside of Horley is believed to date back to the 17th century, and is packed to the rafters (literally) with original features, from exposed beams and posts to inglenook fireplaces and leaded light windows. The six bedrooms, four reception rooms and four bathrooms are set over three floors, and there’s a generous 4.43 acres of land – including frontage onto to the River Mole. Fancy a dip?
This pretty four-bed stone barn conversion near Ashburton has it all: 4.54 acres of well-kept gardens, a light-filled detached annexe and a spot-on location on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. If you can tear yourself away from the gorgeous outdoor space, inside is clean, bright and ready for you to put your own stamp on the decor.
If you’ve got a spare 2 mil in your back pocket, you could get your hands on this Milton Keynes gem. Oldstone Place is a stunning 1850s Grade II listed stone barn, with five en-suite bedrooms and four reception rooms. There’s a huge vaulted kitchen-diner that opens out onto the pretty courtyard (imagine the al fresco dining) and a manicured lawn with countryside views. Yes please.
Once one of the shepherd’s barns on the Goodwood Estate, The Forage Yard is a five-bed beauty covering 3,000 square feet of vaulted rooms, exposed beams and amazing views of the Sussex countryside. You couldn’t ask for a better location either, as it’s on the edge of the picturesque village of East Lavant within the South Downs National Park – when can we come round?
Pond House in Newbury is going on our property wish list ASAP, thanks to its 3,000 square feet of space, rustic original features and prime location in the grounds of a Grade II-listed manor near the village of Winterbourne and the North Wessex Downs AONB. If you’ve got another £425k on top of the £1.3mil asking price, you could snap up the other half of the barn too, which is also on the market.
Like something straight off the front of a postcard, White House Farm is a gorgeous Grade II-listed farmhouse with period features galore (just look at all those exposed beams!), a two-acres paddock with stables and more countryside views than you’ll know what to do with. There’s even another whole barn on site, so you’ll be getting two barns for the price of one!
