If you are looking for a country property that’s eye-catching and a little different, a barn conversion in Oxfordshire could be for you, and we have handpicked some of the best currently on the market.
Why a barn conversion?
Almost all barn conversions are unique, making them good investments. The space they offer and their rural locations, where planning permission for a new home would be unlikely, mean they remain hugely popular with buyers and hold their value well.
Furthermore, barns generally offer big and bright spaces that lend themselves easily to creating open-plan interiors, with plenty of ceiling height and, often, character details such as vaulted ceilings, exposed bricks and ancient timbers.
So whether you are ready to buy or just looking for inspiration, here’s our pick of the best barn conversions for sale in Oxfordshire right now.
An ultra-modern 5-bedroom barn conversion
This ultra-modern barn conversion sits idyllically among fields in around an acre, with up to 6 bedrooms, an entirely glazed west-facing aspect, and underfloor heating throughout. Located in Souldern – a small village on the North Oxfordshire border, Foxhill Barn is the brainchild of an ever so slightly eccentric, classic car enthusiast.
Facing west, over fields, the 700 sq ft of glazing to the entirety of an end wall that invites the outside in is more than what most properties can offer. Then there’s a simply but generously 36 ft wide fitted kitchen and day room, a rather large seating area, five bedrooms (three with en-suite bathrooms), and a cinema room and utility room.
For sale at £1.5m through Cridland & Co.
A stylish 5-bedroom semi-detached barn conversion in Burford
The Grain Store is one of just six individually designed homes sympathetically converted from farm buildings situated in picturesque countryside. Architectural features like arrow-slit windows retain the building’s original character whilst timber cladding and modern finishes combine to create an imposing and stylish property.
The vaulted entrance, with soaring proportions, create a marvellous first impression and leads to the fabulous sitting & dining room and onwards to a sunny vaulted kitchen & breakfast room. A bedroom (with en-suite bathroom), cinema room and utility room complete the downstairs, while upstairs features 4 bedrooms (two en-suite) and a games room.
For sale at £2.1m through Savills.
A 3-bedroom newly converted detached barn
Located between Thame Kingsey village, Tythrop Barn is a newly converted barn set at the end of a long drive together with one other house. With views of the surrounding countryside, the property has been designed to incorporate an abundance of light, copious built-in storage and underfloor air source heating on the ground floor.
There is a generous entrance hall with a cloakroom and a large boot & utility room, plus a well-proportioned room with a large en-suite bath and shower. The rest of the ground floor comprises the main reception area, leading into the kitchen & breakfast room. Upstairs has two further double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms.
For sale at £1.3m through Strutt & Parker.
A striking and imaginative Grade II listed 4-bedroom barn conversion
Dating back to the late 1800s, Bishops Barn was originally an outbuilding for neighbouring Bishops Farm in Drayton, Abingdon. The main structure remains intact with mellow old red brick walls and a double-height vaulted ceiling with glorious huge Oak A-frames and trusses. The symbiosis between the old and new is the result of skilful and intuitive craftsmanship.
This space has now created a stunning kitchen, family & living room, principal bedroom suite with floor to ceiling wardrobes, a further bedroom and family bathroom on the ground floor, and two further bedrooms, each with a generous en suite shower room. There’s also a carport with a large home office space above it.
For sale at £1.3m through Savills.
A fantastic opportunity for a beautiful 4-bedroom barn conversion
The focal point of The Corn Hall in Letcombe Bow, Wantage is the stunning living & dining room flooded with an abundance of natural light from the double-height floor to ceiling windows. Completing the downstairs is a kitchen & breakfast room close to 20ft in length, along with a utility room and downstairs double bedroom with en-suite shower room.
The first floor features two more double bedrooms; the principal bedroom suite with a separate shower and dressing room and the third bedroom with an en-suite shower room. The second floor is home to the guest suite, which also benefits from its own luxury en-suite bathroom.
For sale at £1.1m through Savills.
