Nestled in the foothills of the Cheviots, a step inside this delightful barn conversion will bring a stylish sense of home. Combine its tranquil location and big sky views and you begin to get a sense of place.
A stylish sense of home
Sensitively developed by the owners to respect the integrity of the building, original window features and stonework have been carefully used in its redevelopment.
A key feature of the living space is a wonderful arched window accented by industrial lighting and a contemporary colour scheme of charcoal greys and warm neutrals. Finishes from Colefax and Fowler and fantastic intricate needlework from the Fine Cell Work rehabilitation charity add a final flourish.
When the days grow longer and the appeal of some cosy time beckons, a wood burner is one of life’s simple pleasures. With a good book and a rich merlot, you could be forgiven if you never quite step out the door!
