Whereas one certain converted cowshed in Germany fiercely holds on to the barn feel, this English counterpart has proudly taken the "warm family home" route. The conversion, completed last year by London-based firm A-Zero, complements the steel frames of the former cowshed with a new prefab oak frame, which is left exposed throughout the house. In addition to the steel frame, other components like a clock face and concrete window frames, have also been salvaged from the original structure. Newly on the market for about $2.9M, the 4,600-square-foot-home now offers a cozy four bedrooms (all with vaulted ceilings) and an open-plan living and dining area with a custom kitchen.
Designed with sustainability in mind, the L-shaped home almost reaches passive house standards with south-facing glazing that funnels in sunlight and a series of folding doors for improving ventilation. The six-acre property includes a vegetable garden and paddock.
