The challenge of a barn conversion is the ability to blend harmoniously the character and features of the original building, whilst sympathetically adding modern comfort and convenience without a jarring discord resulting between the two. There are often quite strict controls over what may or may not be permitted in development and this of course will influence the end result.
In the case of this particular property, the vendors have not only masterminded a painstaking restoration, including the numbering, removal, restoration and resiting of many large character components, but also successfully repurposed some examples in a contemporary context. In addition some modern convenience and comfort completes the mix, save only some charming elements of fun. A hand-built, solid oak kitchen, elegant bathrooms and covert underfloor heating feature amongst the former with the latter fun elements including a mezzanine over the principal reception room and a glazed ‘link’ joining the bedroom wing to the reception wing. Retractable bifold doors to both sides allow a number of configurations within this charming ‘inside out’ space. An unusual feature is that the predominance of rooms are all timbered and vaulted inducing almost every visitor to look up first. With a charming sitting room adjoining a stunning dining room, four bedrooms and a family bathroom are found, comprising a generous master with en-suite shower room, guest room also with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Lois Weedon and Weston nestle within an unspoilt farming district in the south west corner of Northamptonshire. The two hamlets combine to make a single community, with Weston claiming the pub, which dates from the 17th century and Lois Weedon the church and primary school.
