Barn Conversion, Crosthwaite

We have recently completed conversion of a large field barn in the Lake District creating two dwellings for a farming charity, The Addington Fund.

Appointed for Full Architectural Services, the conversion of the larger bank barn provides 3 bedroom family accommodation. The design exploits the barn’s volume and views to the Lyth Valley and Lakeland Fells by adopting an upside down arrangement with living accommodation at first floor level.

The smaller barn, contained original 17th Century cruck trusses which we have retained and strengthened. The conversion provides 1 bedroom accommodation with an open plan living / kitchen / dining space. Two large glazed windows providing a stunning view down the Lyth Valley.

Working with local contractor, AM Dixon Building Services, the project now provides homes for farming families in the South Lakeland area.
