Beautiful barn turned into a cozy family home

This barn is one of the most elegant and lovely homes you can find. It’s not big, but it’s spacious, airy and filed with light. As you reach the barn, you’ll see that it’s guarded by a tall oak that seems to be the protector of the land. This is a very unique home and you can notice that right from the front door. There’s an old, hanging maritime brass bell that attempts to replace the usual button. If you don’t like that, there’s also an old school hand-bell offered as an alternative.

Before the current owners moved here, they lived in a 1928 house and farm in Sussex built. They decided to move out and chose this area for their new home. This small, three-bay building is not the perfect family home that they’ve dreamed of. Inside, you’ll see that each piece of furniture, each painting or sculpture fits exactly in that space. The whole interior design has been created around key pieces. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look like a museum but as a cozy home.

The interior design has been a challenge. Besides worrying about space and functionality, the owners also had to satisfy planning and building regulations. In the end everything turned out perfect. It took more than four years to complete the décor that you see now. It was well worth the waiting.

The roof and walls are made of timber and the oak staircase has been bought at an auction, after laying out in a yard for several years. This 23 acre barn is definitely unique and the interior design is breathtaking.{found on wealdentimes}
