These refurbished farm buildings span 400 years

Black House Farm encompasses a historic farmhouse and threshing barn

An architect-led transformation of a former farm in South Downs National Park has hit the market at £6,950,000 through the Modern House. Black House Farm consists of a Grade II-listed 17th-century yeoman’s farmhouse and a 19th-century threshing barn, reimagined by Robin Lee Architecture amid 20 acres of private fields and wildflower meadows.

The historic farmhouse, with its high thatched roof, sits at the forefront, accessed by a gated driveway. Lounges, bathrooms and four bedrooms on all three storeys have been updated with new hardwood windows, oak doors and repaired hardwood floors.

From here, a simple new-build single-storey timber-clad houses three en suite bedrooms. The U-shaped structure has polished-concrete floors throughout and sliding glazed doors that look onto an enclosed garden. This volume directs the flow of movement toward the former threshing barn, 30 metres away.

Clad in lapped timber boards and a black corrugated sheet-steel roof, the rehabilitated barn houses the bespoke oak and granite kitchen, dining room and main living space. The voluminous spaces have views of the wildflower meadow and forest through enormous windows and glass doors.

The village of Hinton Ampner is close by, with the Georgian town of Alresford a 15-minute drive away.
