THE DEVELOPMENT Picton Barns is an elegant range of 13 properties, each one imaginatively designed and due to be finished to a meticulous standard. The first seven units (all four bedroom) to be completed will be from the traditional brick built barns whilst phase two will be focussed on the creation of six contemporary dwellings from a more modern building.
The barns previously formed part of Picton Gorse Farm, a family run traditional dairy farm. They are situated in the charming hamlet of Picton just three miles to the northeast of Chester City Centre. Adjoining open countryside, this exclusive development of barn conversions enjoys far reaching views, offering rural living in a commutable location.
The properties have been lovingly restored by Bespoke Group using their team of accomplished craftsman to create exquisite, refined and contemporary homes which will unquestionably exceed all expectations. Each property enjoys superb open-plan family kitchens, separate utility rooms and formal entertaining spaces.
Individually designed then expertly converted, each barn provides spacious and modern accommodation whilst retaining the distinctive character, heritage and sense of history of the buildings, making each home completely unique. Original beams and trusses form the backdrop to the craftsman finished interiors featuring the latest technology combined with beautiful finishing touches such as bespoke hand-built kitchens and wardrobes.
Arguably unique for barn conversion developments, each property at Picton Barns will have a detached double garage, ample private parking and generous gardens. In addition, grass paddocks are available by separate negotiation.
