Burnett, Bath – 4 Bed Barn Conversion
Full Styling and Furniture Rental
This beautiful barn, was converted by the same home builders who built the luxury home in Norton St Philip. A unique and very desirable development of just 6 barns, Porch Barn is an imposing 4 bedroom archetypal barn conversion; with a vast living room and double height gable window.
This barn was the first one to be completed on the development and although some viewings had already taken place, as soon as it had been finished and signed off, the company and estate agents planned to hold an open day.
Feedback on previous viewings had been good but buyers struggled to work out where they would position their furniture and how to make best use of the rooms downstairs.
Before & After Gallery
The agents got in touch to ask whether I thought it was possible to transfer some, or all, of the furniture from the previous show home to the new barn. Luckily, the Norton show home was just about to complete and there was still time left on the furniture hire contract.
The barn is a very different ‘shape’ to the 5 bedroom house. Smaller in some areas but enough general similarities used in the finishes and the same calm and serene colours/textures as used the last property. I knew it would all flow nicely – it would just be a bit of a challenge to style all the rooms without ‘proper’ planning!
There was no doubt the bedrooms would work well – it was downstairs that could be more difficult. A few changes were necessary and last minute items were sourced, existing things moved around, some were taken out and a few added in. The move was smoother than I’d dared hope, the open day was a success with a number of interested parties giving great feedback about the presentation and some considering offers on the development.
Some of the styling work had continued late into the night to meet the open day deadline (it was a little spooky being the only one there after dark!) and I can say, that whoever buys the barn (or any of the others), will have a fantastic time star-gazing…. the planning conditions at the development prevent outside lights being fitted to avoid light pollution.
