On a quiet country lane near England’s Kent-Sussex border, architect John Bullock’s Glass Barn is a five-bedroom conversion currently seeking a new owner. The home draws its name from the 14 aluminum-framed windows that illuminate the 7,000-square-foot space and provide far-reaching views of rolling hills and fields.
As part of the conversion, Bullock expanded the original stone structure with contemporary additions, including the glass-enclosed mezzanine level above the kitchen, which helps to emphasize the scale of the pitched roof. Skylights in the apex of the roof further brighten the spacious interiors.
A large kitchen, complete with exposed beams overhead, is located off the entrance hall. Fitted with high-end appliances, the space also features a central steel island and an adjoining scullery. The main living areas sit just steps away, and are lined with herringbone oak floors.
The private quarters await at the southern end of the first floor. In addition to four bedrooms and en suite baths, this section also includes several versatile spaces which can be used as a creative studio, office, or gym.
Further, the home offers annex accommodation that is configured across two floors and comes with a kitchenette, bedroom, and bath. Though the space is accessible via the first floor of the main house, it also features a separate entrance, making it an idyllic guest or rental flat.
