Glass walls illuminate this epic barn conversion in Frome, Somerset

Hapsford Stables offers 10,000 sq ft of living space

Stone stable blocks have been transformed into a vast, light-filled home in the Somerset countryside that unfurls over 10,000 sq ft.

The four-bedroom Hapsford Stables has been completely rebuilt within the barn’s original foundations while retaining its industrial proportions and material palette. An entire wall of sliding glass opens the countryside home up to its surrounds, while the ground floor is mostly one open-plan volume, loosely divided by a double-sided fireplace.

The kitchen and dining room sit on one side of this brick insert, and a cosy living room on the other.

Soaring double-height ceilings and skylights further amplify the feeling of volume across the countryside home, while polished concrete floors, painted brickwork and exposed timber set the tone for its rustic interiors.

Meanwhile, a series of mezzanines split levels and lowered ceilings create more intimate nooks and living spaces within the Somerset property’s vast footplate.

For yoga enthusiasts, there’s an open workspace on one side of the living room and access to the enormous master bedroom which occupies half of the upper level.

The countryside property is for sale via The Modern House for £3.295m and comes with a host of extras, including a self-contained, one-bedroom stone cottage that sits at the foot of the main house and working equestrian facilities. These comprise a detached stable block, three-bedroom cottage, and just under 30 acres of wildflower meadows, paddocks and pastureland.
