INTRODUCTION

A 16th Century Listed traditional barn constructed of heavy Oak timber framing set in the Essex countryside and converted by City & Country. The barn had continued in farm-use right up until the 1990s, having most recently been used as a dairy, which had resulted in it being ‘extended’ in the form of modern farm buildings.

The restoration process involved the removal of the modern additions and the extensive repair of the existing structure, creating a single residence of character and style.

The barn included numerous bespoke features such as an ‘original’ staircase made entirely out of reclaimed oak beams (without the use of any modern fixings), and a miniature step-in wine cellar.

Bristol General Hospital represents one of the largest redevelopment sites in the city and we see it as a potential catalyst to stimulate the wider regeneration of western Redcliffe...."
