A beautifully-converted 19th-century barn perched on a hillside with fine views over the Vale of Clwyd and the distant hills of Snowdonia
When a barn conversion is done well and in a great location, the results can be spectacular.
This is certainly true of Bryn Tirion Barn. Several years ago the building lay derelict and its owners thought this a terrible waste, especially considering its position overlooking the Vale of Clwyd in North Wales.
Luckily, they had the vision to convert it into a two-storey family home, which makes great use of its south-west aspect thanks to large glazed windows, which flood the property with light and warmth.
Also providing warmth is a state-of-the-art underfloor heating system, which uses water pumped from a private borehole to heat both floors of the house.
A long drive leads to a parking area outside the front of the barn. Above this is an elevated patio and barbecue area, ideally situated in the sunniest spot and enjoying fine views over the valley.
The three acres of land on which the house sits comprise large lawns and a selection of young flowering trees and shrubs.
Inside, the large reception hall is currently used as a dining room and contains a lovely oak and glass staircase leading to the first floor.
Meanwhile, the drawing room rises to the full height of the house with skylights in the ceiling, as well as a double-fronted log burner and an oak bookcase.
The kitchen has wall and base units as well as a central island, and is fitted with many top-notch appliances, including a stainless steel fridge, freezer and wine cooler.
Leading on from the kitchen is the garden room – a relaxing spot with large, glazed windows looking out over the patio and lawn.
Also on the ground floor – accessed from the drawing room – is a one-bedroom self-contained space with a sliding door to the front, plus a shower room and a study that could become another bedroom if needed.
Upstairs are the two main bedrooms, both with views across the valley. The master has an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, while the second bedroom has its own shower room. There’s also planning permission (as well as wiring and plumbing in place) for a fourth bedroom, should you wish to add extra space to the property.
It took two-and-a-half years for the current owners to turn Bryn Tirion Barn from derelict building to luxury home. Why not take a look around yourself to determine if it was time well spent.
