Tucked away amid the rolling hills of Mid Wales, Darowen Barn is a stylish open-plan home, designed in total sympathy with its environment, blending local oak and feature stone walls with contemporary comforts.
Each room exudes style and grandeur, thanks to an incredible fusion of traditional charm and contemporary comforts. The bespoke and hand-crafted kitchen is superb, with fittings made from local Welsh oak blending magnificently with slate worktops and a ceramic sink.
Rustic-inspired oak beams and slate flooring create a rural framing of thoroughly modern facilities, including a huge TV in front of the cosy sofas and modern log-burner. Beside this is the large dining table, and all of this is set in an open-plan style, allowing the conversation to flow freely through the shared spaces. There’s a second kitchen on the other side of the house; this one is even more spacious. For a little entertainment head to the well-stocked games room, complete with a fabulous pool table, books, games and docking station so you can put the tunes on and start the party.
Then, when it’s time for bed, take the charming staircase to the first floor to find all five bedrooms, all graced with breathtaking countryside views displaying the rich heart of Wales in all its glory. The master suite enjoys a king-size bed, feature stone walls, original beams and high ceilings and a beautiful en-suite bathroom with a large shower and underfloor heating. There are two more king-size rooms, one twin and a children’s room equipped with bunk beds. Two full family bathrooms serve the latter four rooms, with underfloor heating, luxurious bathtubs, powerful overhead showers and the all-important warming towel rail.
And finally, out in your garden you’ll find an array of garden furniture in which you can sit back, relax and soak up the incredible views over the rolling hills of central Wales, hinting at the vast range of the Brecon Beacons which sit only moments away. Fire up the barbeque on a sunny day for a fine day of fresh air and tranquillity. A children’s play area completes the set-up and ensures there’s something for all ages to enjoy.
