The Seed Store is a contemporary conversion of a period detached farm building, standing in a beautiful rural position, overlooking six acres of grounds, which often includes grazing livestock. The former seed store has been brought back to life using traditional materials, including hemp and lime insulation, lime plaster and original brick flooring, and now offers an extremely light and contemporary living space. A particular feature of the property is the sitting room, which enjoys far-reaching panoramic views across open fields, through bespoke curved glass windows and double doors.
