Avonbridge barn is given new lease of life

This fantastic barn conversion has been given a new lease of life thanks to over a year of restoration work.

The Avonbridge property is virtually brand new, having been re-built by the current owners, Kenneth and Libby MacLeod.

The property has undergone major renovations

The property has undergone major renovations

The couple, who have owned the house for three years, bought the property knowing that it would need to be completely restored.

Mr MacLeod, who has been in the housebuilding business for more than 50 years, took on the challenge, creating a home that’s almost an exact replica of what was there before.

And the sympathetic update features fantastic modern, luxury qualities including four to five bedrooms, an en suite, stylish bathroom and a hand-built staircase.

Mr MacLeod said: “It’s really a brand new house.

“The work took about 12 to 13 months, between my wife and I and my wife’s nephew.

“We worked on it during evenings and weekends.

“One of its best features is the large, open plan kitchen diner.

“The views are also wonderful, and it’s very peaceful here.”

Set in extensive grounds, this property sits neatly in between Avonbridge and California.

The extensive living space downstairs comprises an entrance hallway, open plan kitchen diner which leads through to a family room with patio doors.

There’s also downstairs wet room, utility room, and a fantastic sitting room with exposed beams and feature window.
