This project required us to re-use, extend, and adapt an existing barn to form 2 No. dwellings . The barn was located in rural part of Flockton with a long narrow drive leading up to it.
We designed the 2 new homes to be sympathetic with the existing barn, exposing the traditional brickwork and timber beams, while incorporating new windows to take advantage of the breathtaking view.
The Barn at Cockermouth Farm is a stunning 4 bed family home that boasts formal gardens, and approaching 1.5 acres of grazing land. Little expense has been spared in order to create a beautiful blend of high class contemporary living space that perfectly complements the original barn.
Both dwellings are accessed via long lane with driveway up to the property and stables, large parking area for multiple cars with amble parking for a horse box.
The cottage is currently for sale—http://www.shaunmellor.com/properties/sale/191/the…
