Coach House

Barn Conversion

Rural Chic.


Nestled in the heart of the Lancashire countryside, this project transformed a former coach house into a beautiful home which drew on urban design for a contemporary approach to rural living. As a Grade II listed sand stone building which dates back to 1715, renovating The Coach House didn't come without its challenges, but not only are we delighted with the finished result, so are its happy owners. The Coach House now boasts a large, open plan, triple height living space within the restored structure which is light, airy and modern. Going beyond the original building, the renovation was complemented further by the addition of a brand new structure using reclaimed materials which houses five spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms.

"Wickstead Developments made this tricky project appear totally effortless. The workmanship was second-to-none and the finished result speaks for itself - we're so happy with it. Paul and his brilliant team ensured we had the contemporary home we wanted without jeopardising the traditional qualities of this historic house. A job very well done."

The Coach House project wasn't merely a structural renovation, many incredible interior features were installed by our team of artisan craftsmen including stone masons, carpenters, joiners, oak wrights and lead workers and all finished to the highest standard. From a state-of-the-art Poggenpohl kitchen to a stunning floating American walnut staircase with a stylish glass balustrade, it's a far cry from its former state and a true transformation. Finishing touches include a Bang & Olufsen entertainment system in all recreational areas including the external terrace as well as Lutron mood lighting throughout and cosy underfloor heating. The Coach House demonstrates the innovative thinking and impeccable craftsmanship that we pride ourselves on and is the perfect example of a modern barn conversion.
