Plenty of people love the unique challenge of taking on a renovation project.
The rewards from buying a property and fixing it up can be huge – although the emotional and financial pressures can also be extremely taxing.
The opportunity to create an amazing home or resale property is very tempting, if the challenge of the job can be overcome.
This renovation project in St Asaph is more than just a new kitchen and bathroom and a lick of standard magnolia paint – but it could be perfect for somebody.
It might have walls and a roof and even some floors but it could be classed as extreme as it is a big project to undertake, transforming two farm barns in their raw state into two luxury dream homes within the Denbighshire countryside.
The barns are situated beside Pen y Bryn farmhouse and the range of traditional stone barns has planning consent for conversion into two dwellings separated by double garages.
What a beautiful location to put down rural roots, enjoying unspoilt countryside views down the valley towards the River Elwy and yet close enough to the A55 and St Asaph to be convenient, reports WalesOnline.
Once you’ve transformed both barns maybe keep one to live in it and sell the other to recoup your renovation budget, although as both barns are just empty stone and wood beam shells at the moment, it might not cover all your outgoings.
And the icing on this renovation cake is that the site already has a swimming pool and you can negotiate this bonus feature, as well as extra land and woodland, into a higher purchase price or separate negotiation.
The barn conversions are for sale for offers over £300,000 with estate agent Rickett Partnership, give their Chester branch a call on 01244 322322 to find out more.
