Crazy about Conversions

Living in a home that previously functioned as another type of dwelling is a trend that never seems to wane. From barns to bunkers, and all that’s in-between conversions come in all shapes, sizes and prices.

The history, charm, and feel of each converted home is utterly unique, so if a rare and one-off place to call home is important to you then a conversion just might be the obvious choice for your next abode.

Whether you are looking to buy, rent, or you are just a conversion connoisseur looking to expand your repertoire, we have handpicked some of our favourites below.

Hackney, E2 - Cotton Mill

This exquisite split level, Victoria Cotton Mill conversion has beautifully blended modern, high specification fixtures and fittings around many of the historic building’s original features, such as exposed brickwork, vaulted ceilings and original hardwood rafters and braces.

Bristol, South Gloucestershire - Threshing Barn

Poplar Barn is a large and well planned conversion of a 17th century Threshing barn, converted about 10 years ago. The original ‘Barn Feel’ has been maintained as much as possible, with added period beams and features to further enhance its character. Threshing barns are much loved as they offer exceptionally large double openings to the front and rear that allows the light and space that this house has in abundance.

Chesham, Buckinghamshire - Grade II Lodge

This deceptively spacious Grade II listed lodge was built in 1711 and has been sympathetically extended and updated to create a charming and practical detached home. The original part of the house has retained many period features, including the original fanlight above the impressive portico front door.

Ockley, Surrey - Grade II Inn

This historic building was formerly an inn having been recently converted into three attached properties by C. Ansell & Sons. The four bedroom, newly converted period property has retained many original features and is set over three floors with a modern kitchen including a central island and integrated appliances. This property is also available for sale through our Dorking branch.

Wapping, E1W - Victorian Warehouse

Metropolitan Wharf has been renovated to an impressively high specification, including mechanical pulleys, fully vaulted timber beams, exposed London brick, rough oak floors and even iron warehouse doors. Other design features echo the heritage of the building, such as the bespoke spiral staircases created from folded mild steel.

Caversfield, Oxfordshire - World War II Bunker

Formerly a World War II decontamination bunker, this property has been lovingly converted into a sumptuous home. As featured in the TV program 'Amazing Spaces' this is a truly remarkable and unique property perfect for someone looking for a stylish and tranquil home within beautiful grounds.
