500-Yr-Old Barn Converted Into Countryside Haven – Step Inside, You’ll Think You’re Dreaming

January 24th, 2018

Get ready to meet your new dream home.

In the village of Buxhall, located in Suffolk County, England, is an absolutely breathtaking cottage in the countryside. The home was converted from a 500-year-old barn that sits on its very own private two-acre property.

The exterior of the home is modest — featuring a thatched roof, rustic wood siding, a small patio surrounded by beautiful landscaping.

The barn-turned-cottage doesn’t look like much from the outside — but inside, it’s like a little piece of heaven.

Walk through the stable to enter the cottage’s bright and inviting living space.

One foot inside this countryside cottage and you’re overwhelmed with elegance. The original preserved wooden beams highlight the room and the light furnishings really open up the space. Floor to ceiling windows let in an abundance of natural light.

The comfortable and open living room is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Classic antique furniture pays homage to barn’s history. A beautiful Dutch door leads out to the cottage’s backyard.

Although the kitchen isn’t large, it has everything you need to cook a delicious meal.

The kitchen boasts a small oven and range, sink, and mini-fridge. Exposed shelving provides plenty of storage, and the butcher block countertops are perfect for the country setting. Rolling pins and wooden spoons adorn the walls for decoration.

Additional storage in the kitchen is provided by beautiful built-in shelving on the opposing wall.

Walk up the staircase near the stable door to reach the sleeping loft. As you ascend, views of the first floor show just how open and airy the cottage really is.

From this angle, the woodwork and clean lines of the home are just breathtaking. It just goes to show that simplicity certainly doesn’t mean boring.

The bright and welcoming sleeping loft features more incredible wood beams and tall vaulted ceilings.

The bedroom boasts a king-size bed, seating area, and is decorated with fresh flowers and a beautiful Persian rug. Morning sunlight floods the room thanks to the large windows in the loft.

The bathroom is simple but certainly doesn’t skimp on luxury.

Before bed, take a soak in the cottage’s large bathtub. Since the old barn’s frame doesn’t provide a straight wall for a mirror, the accordion mirror was a great alternative.
