An architectural and elegant brand new barn conversion in a delightful rural setting


Youngwood Lane is a delightful, rural location on the fringes of the neighbouring villages of Backwell and Nailsea. Located to the South of Bristol, there are excellent road, air and rail links via the A370, Bristol Airport and Nailsea and Backwell Train Station respectively. There are a range of schools, state and independent nearby and for the latter Clifton College, Clifton High School and The Downs School in Wraxall are highly regarded. Bristol provides an extensive range of independent schools and there are excellent recreational facilities close by. The backdrop and surrounding countryside provides fantastic opportunities for equestrians, cyclists and walkers alike.


This exceptional home has been designed with great imagination and flair, seamlessly blending period character with the very latest in stylish, contemporary finishes. The original barn dates to 1833 and now forms part of a select group of just three homes tucked behind the former farmhouse, creating a sense of seclusion and privacy. An imposing stone walled, gated entrance leads to each of the barn’s own private driveways, all beautifully landscaped and with the benefit of a wide gravelled frontage and large double garage providing dedicated parking for a number of family cars.

The Hay Barn occupies a prime, sheltered plot of approximately one third of an acre, perfectly orientated to the glorious sunshine that floods across the extensive, south facing terrace from which far reaching views over the neighbouring village of Chelvey can be enjoyed. Importantly, the house has been finished to a standard in order that it is ready for the purchaser to move straight into, including the laying of beautiful floor finishes throughout, with all rooms tastefully decorated and a superb kitchen, comprehensively fitted with an impressive range of high end appliances.

Great care has been taken to maximise the energy efficiency of The Hay Barn, with a 4 KW solar renewable delivering the hot water and through the latest technology, reducing household power costs. Designed with modern day living at its heart, the central heating and control of the entrance gates can be linked to mobile devices and on a practical note, the barn is pre-wired with telephone and TV to the majority of rooms. As part of the refurbishment works, the roof has been completely renewed, fully insulated, felted and retiled using the original tiles and the smart external black guttering and downpipes are all new and maintenance free.

Approached via a handmade, oak entrance porch, the oak floor entrance hall features an impressive steel, oak and glass staircase with a double height open to the Barn’s original timber trusses. This welcoming and bright reception has a wide, gentle staircase to an open family room, which in conjunction with the kitchen and dining Room provides a wonderful informal space for entertaining large numbers of family and friends. The stunning, hand painted timber kitchen sourced locally, from The Home & Kitchen Store includes a central cooking and eating island with twin ovens, dishwasher, induction hob, American style fridge/freezer, a ceramic sink and an extensive run of stileston and oak work surfaces. Large format ceramic floor tiles with underfloor heating perfectly compliment the units and bi-fold doors open from the breakfast area directly onto the sunny terrace. A separate utility room provides further storage with a built-in vertical freezer and plumbing for a washing machine.

A lovely ground floor guest suite optimises flexible living arrangements with a dedicated bathroom and offering terrific independence to a dependent relative or growing teenager.

There are two further reception rooms with a superbly proportioned drawing room with wood burning stove leading via double doors into a large recreation room. This is an excellent bonus area that would make a fine home office, fitness studio or cinema room.
At first floor, there are four further bedrooms, two of which are en suite with a further well appointed family bathroom.
