About this property

  • From West St Studio architects this exciting proposal for a barn conversion is a rare opportunity for those looking for a self-build project. There are uninterrupted views over the surrounding fields to the west and north and a wonderful balance of privacy without total isolation. The design connects an existing steel portal barn with a six bay garage by means of a timber and glass link which also forms a courtyard.

    Planning permission has been granted by Maidstone Borough Council (21/503017/FULL) for the conversion of the barn and garage and the construction of a link to create a single dwelling, together with demolition of stable block, removal of hardstanding and equestrian menage and provision of car parking and landscaping.

    The former garage houses four bedrooms, three of which face south to the wildflower meadow, whilst the master bedroom faces west to take advantage of the views. The taller barn incorporates a contemporary open plan kitchen and living space which opens on to a covered terrace.

    The site occupies a delightful rural setting abutting open countryside, and set well back off a private shared drive, about 1.5 miles to the south west of the thriving village of Staplehurst with its range of good local shopping facilities and mainline station with fast and frequent services to London.

I take my hat off to our client and his architect who have designed and delivered a fabulous consented scheme in this wonderful rural position
