Traditional Barn Building with Contemporary Interiors

Traditional barn building

This remarkable residence is situated in the historic South Hams village of Cornworthy and was designed by the well-respected architect Murray Church. Cornworthy is a picturesque village in the sought-after South Hams area of Devon that dates back to Saxon times.

Traditional barn building in Cornworthy, near Totnes, DevonExternally the house – built from Devon stone by two local craftsmen – resembles traditional barn buildings of the area but internally the spaces are light, largely open plan and engagingly dynamic. The key rooms are two voluminous living areas on the two floors, the larger of which is notable for its beautiful, undulating timber ceiling (much inspired by Scandinavian architects),
The ground floor, aside from the living room, which forms a semi-open plan space with the kitchen / dining room, features an entrance lobby (with a utility room and WC / cloakroom off it) and a bedroom with en suite bathroom.

There are also three further bedrooms and a family bathroom and sauna on this floor. The internal area of the house measures approximately 237 sq m (2,550 sq ft). It is underfloor heated throughout, which is powered by an energy efficient geothermal heat pump with solar thermal domestic hot water.

An integral car port, which accommodates up to three cars, can be found to the side of the main building and there is also a garden store and greenhouse.
