Grade II Listed Barn
Grade II listed barn- work in progress
The barn is one of the surviving outbuildings on a substantial estate, built in the late Tudor period and once owned by the family of Sir Francis Bacon. The barn has been carefully converted with the old structure exposed with insulation to current standards discretely incorporated and features underfloor heating throughout, fed by a biomass heating system.
Timber from the old feed bays was re-used on new walls. The kitchen was raised to enable a view of the landscape and to allow ducting from a venting hob. Double glazed metal windows with heritage ironmongery replicate the old Crittal frames. Paint is by Farrow and Ball and Little Greene. Floor coverings are by The Unnatural Flooring Company
Landscaping work is currently being completed to the former farmyard where converted and new elements will replicate the historic layout using a traditional palette of forms and materials to enhance the setting of the listed buildings.
The house and outbuildings are retained by the estate and available to rent.
