This barn quadrangle conversion was once part of the Milford Abbey estate and comes with a garden that is “akin to the Chelsea Flower Show”. 

Denant Farm, in Dreenhill, dates back to the 16th century, and as well as the main home includes a separate cottage and more than two acres of grounds.

The four former barns were converted into the house between 2014 and 2017 by the current owners, retaining character features while introducing modern amenities. 

The main entrance leads into a drawing room with a vaulted ceiling, which has been made from imported Canadian redwood A-frames, a feature stone wall, a wood-burning stove and sandstone flooring.

Further into the home, the sitting room features exposed steel beams that remain from the original grain store, as well as double French doors and a bespoke multimedia storage unit, while next to this room is a study or extra bedroom. 

Bifold doors lead through to the kitchen, breakfast and dining room, which incorporates oversized Welsh oak A-frames, a centre island, integrated double ovens and a sub-zero wine cooler.

There are also three bedrooms on this level, all with en-suite bathrooms, and two with bespoke fitted wardrobes and desk areas - one of these also including the original stone archway from the farm. 

The oversized staircase is handmade from French oak and glass, and was made locally, leading up to a spacious mezzanine area. 

On the first floor, there are two bedrooms with bespoke fitted furniture, and a family bathroom.

Attached to the main house is a self-contained cottage that is currently used as a holiday let, offering one bedroom and a handmade Drew Williams kitchen and diner. 

Also in the grounds, which span approximately 2.3 acres, is a detached stone barn that has been converted into a gym, an old stable block and an agricultural barn.

Throughout the grounds are landscaped gardens, with a central courtyard garden area that the agent compares to the Chelsea Flower Show, fruit trees, and an Alitex National Trust greenhouse. 

The current owners have submitted a pre application for an additional four-bedroom home in one of the remaining barns.

The property is being sold by estate agents Savills for a price of £1,950,000. 

Dan Rees, head of Savills residential team in Cardiff is marketing the property and commented: “Dating back to the 16th century, Denant Farm is a unique property, rich in history and cleverly converted into a most impressive family home. 

“The quality of the materials and finish used in its transformation is superb, and the gardens – particularly the French Parterre courtyard garden – are really special.”
