Sinderhope Shield | Listed Barn Conversion
Once a set of stone barns and byres, forming part of a traditional farm steading, Sinderhope Shield is a group of Grade II Listed buildings set around a Bastle House. Listed Building Consent was attained for the conversion of the stone barn and the adjacent annex, as well as proposed works to the main farmhouse. The owners have toiled over a period of months and years to bring their vision to fruition. The converted property retains the full character of the former farm steading, while creating open plan, light filled living spaces with incredible long views up and down the Allan Valley beyond.
With stunning views all round, Sinderhope Shield sits in a prominant postion in the Allan Valley AONB. The property has been lovingly converted and restored by the owners into a stunning family home.
The external walls have repaired, made good and re-pointed with lime mortar, allowing the building to breath. Windows and doors are timber, finished in a soft gren grey, which sits comfortably with the natural stone. Old concrete heads and cills have been replaced with simple, clean, ashlar items. The roof has been stripped, a breathable membrane added and the reclimed slate re-laid. The concrete floor ha sbene removed and a traditional lime screed floor has been laid. This is becoming a truly beautiful building in a stunning setting!
