An oasis away from the city.
The Brick Barn was converted in 2010, combining traditional materials with modern comforts, the sense of space has been retained by keeping the living area to its full height, the upstairs is presented as a mezzanine. This does reflect how the barn used to be, with a partial floor to store the grains for milling. The mill wheel is still on the side of the barn, and this was driven by a steam engine. Downstairs has – as is traditional in these barns – a soft brick floor, though with underfloor heating. Upstairs flooring is laid with recycled oak floor boards from a 180 yr old Amish barn, also with underfloor heating.
Original stall partitions, once used for the working horses, which later gave way to tractors, are used in the kitchen and living room area.
