Barn Conversion, Moore Place, Much Hadham

The development was completed in 2015 and included the conversion of the curtilage listed 17 century, six bay timber framed barn.

It is a large threshing barn of six bays, with two gabled midstreys on the north side, with lean-to animal and storage accommodation on either side of these. On the rear north elevation is an open-fronted lean-to under a catslide roof. The barn sits on a brick plinth and is timber framed. It is externally finished in timber weatherboarding, apart from part of the central lean-to which has been rebuilt in brick. The roofs are plain tiled, apart from the north lean-to, which is finished with clay pantiles.

The interior of the main barn was a single space. The bay divisions are marked by main posts with jowls, tie-beams and arched braces, are pegged in. The roof is of collar purlin construction, with raking struts rising from the tie beams to the purlins.

The barn was converted into two, three bedroom dwellings, each comprising, living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast area, utility and study on the ground floor and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and two further bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor. The central midstrey space in each barn was retained as a full height entrance hall and landing.
