Our clients are the owners of a traditional Staffordshire farmhouse with existing barns and outbuildings. Our approach has been to create a large symmetrical open plan living space orientated to the garden side of the barn. This provides a centralised island kitchen with dining to the front looking out to the garden, and the sitting room to one side. We have created 2 mezzanine floors within the existing trusses to create a guest bedroom to one side, and a study to the other. Below the mezzanine floor to one side is the Master Suite, with ensuite and dressing room. Below the other the entrance lobby, boot room and utility are tucked away discretely. It is a spectacular space with a real sense of generosity.
