Preaching to the Converted

By Alex D'Andrea - 30 May 2019

When looking at property, a converted property is top of many buyers wish lists. The blend of historic charm and modern technology combines the best of both a new build and the character of an existing property. A barn conversion is one of the most popular, due to the advantage of high ceilings and large open spaces inside, whilst others such as former chapels and old school houses have brickwork, roofs and windows that make them stand out from the crowd… Beresfords currently have range of conversions currently on the market, take a look to see if any take your fancy.

Approaching Whitehouse Farms Barns, you cannot fail to be struck by their beautiful, innovative fusion of historic and contemporary construction. The Barns are a secluded pair of outstanding properties each finished to truly exquisite standards. Every element of these properties design and construction have been carefully considered from the outset, with all materials, surfaces, fittings and features personally selected to ensure the highest quality and the complete elimination of imperfections. Crafted with absolute precision and exquisite attention to detail, every door, latch, worktop and fixture is the embodiment of perfection. The utmost care and attention has been taken in the building's conversion to maintain its authenticity all materials were specially selected and prepared under personal supervision to ensure every element is consistent with the building's original character and charm, whilst being guided by superior standards and techniques. Where original materials needed to be replaced or augmented, only the finest closely-matching examples of reclaimed brick, stone and timber were sourced to fulfil the need. On the ground, authentic outdoor clay patios were found to complement the barn's existing brickwork, while new roof tiles have been weathered and conditioned to match original stock. Elsewhere, contemporary high-quality weather-boarding, large areas of toughened glass and the finely rendered white interior walls form an ideal counterpoint to the tastefully-exposed traditional materials, emphasising their intense heritage and vivid tactility.
