The Barn Conversion in Somerset

The owners were looking for a holiday home for their family and found this 18th-century barn with amazing views and a rich history. They named the property Kilnwood and together with an architectural company De Rosee Sa undertook a major renovation of the barn and added a further building. After the renovation, the owners hired an interior designer Julia Alexander to transform the space into a comfortable yet stylish home. 

The property can be rented through Unique Homestays
