Beautiful Modern Farm Houses: UK Countryside Conversion

A beautiful modern farm house combining traditional and modern elements, this barn conversion design is somewhat of a local landmark. The home was actually part of a Television show, Grand Designs, where the homeowner and architect Stedman Blower Architects were challenged to create a design that left the original exterior intact while totally transforming the interior of the home. This UK farmhouse is a distinctive “English” charm, from the exterior with its shingled roof, to the interior where the exposed wood-beam ceilings (8.5 meters high!) are visible throughout this open concept home. In a modern touch, this spiral staircase house twists and turns its way up to a catwalk crossing the two-storey living space. Despite its rustic elements, this countryside home has a contemporary style we love. Stedman Blower Architects
