Listed Dairy Barn Converted to 3 Bedroom Properties

Client: Kitwe Developments Ltd

Location: Llay, Nr Wrexham, North Wales

Details: Meadow Barns is a continuation of our work with Kitwe Developments Ltd from Oswestry.

Approval permission was granted for the application submitted by Bromilow Architects in 2010 and work has continued on the barn with the show home opening in March 2011. The scheme has now been completed and has picked up the above award along with a ‘commendation’ award from Wrexham Civic Society.

The large u-shaped barn had been unused for some time and was converted into 9 properties each with three bedrooms. It is surrounded by later block built farm buildings that were demolished to leave the barn standing.  Some of the buildings do have historical interest and will be retained and used within the scheme as ancillary buildings.

We worked closely with the Client, Local Authority and Conservation officers and designed a series of individual units that are sympathetic to the features of the existing barn with some bedrooms featuring the original large timber oak beams and trusses, as well as some of the existing internal brick walls and features.

The conversion of the Listed Barn has been awarded a prestigious award by Premier Guarantee, a market leader in providing Structural Warranties, Building Control and Developer Support Services.
