What the owners said.

"When we initially discovered this old dilapidated barn, with cattle still resident, it immediately became apparent there were amazing possibilities that you rarely encounter in a conventional barn conversion. We had to do a complete refurbishment of the existing building, maintaining the original footprint and the design grew organically whilst we were living in it! Sorting brickwork, raising the roof, making sure all the exposed beams became the focal point of the rooms and ensuring the whole house was full of light, functional and airy. The superb views are an added highlight and the way the house looks out across the mature garden and the side aspect overlooking the adjoining fields give that real feel of being in the country but close to Wrexham and Chester and all the major road and rail links which is important for getting to and from work.

Oak Barn has been a great family home, really cosy and homely and we have thoroughly enjoyed living there over the years. It has been a fantastic space for entertaining when the family descend from the Highlands to stay for Christmas and Summer holidays and certainly when you have the size of family we have there is always somewhere to find a bit of free space.

We will be extremely sad to leave but we know that the next owner will appreciate all the things we enjoyed in the house and hopefully love it as much as we do."
