Take a wander around picturesque Roundhouse Barn in Cornwall

We’d recommend putting your feet up for five minutes as we explore this fabulous converted barn...

Feast your eyes on this picture perfect property located in Truro, dating back to the 18th century. Roundhouse Barn is a countryside home that boasts a six bedroom main house and three multi-award winning one-bedroom holiday cottages.

We’re loving its natural quirky character and original charm but also the addition of some much-needed modernity, making it the perfect family space. It's currently on the market with Savills, with a guide price of £1.5 million.

Go on, grab yourself a brew and settle down, there are stunning views galore here!

This extremely appealing entrance looks as if it’s been taken from a postcard! The fabulous rustic stonework is definitely a focal point, a reminder of the Barn’s historic roots. With a front garden this gorgeous, we’re sold without even stepping inside.

The heart of the house, this up-to-date kitchen combines neutral tiled floors and modern oak fixtures. The addition of a central island is perfect for maximising space, whilst integrated appliances allow for a streamlined look. We can almost smell the freshly baked pasties from here!

Well this is a room where space is clearly no issue. This gorgeous room is ideal for family meals with an oak table being the centrepiece. It has the bonus of being fabulously well-lit from large windows and white walls. Not only that, it's easy to see socialising is no feat, with a door leading into the spacious living area.

We’re definitely getting more envious as the tour goes on! This fabulous living area makes the most of the quirky circular shape. Due to light pouring in from a number of windows, the room is spacious and inviting. The exposed beams make for a charming addition to the room’s character.
