Farmhouse Extension Glazed Linked Annexe and Barn Conversion

As Featured on TV for Channel 4’s Extraordinary Extensions!

As featured on Channel 4’s “Extraordinary Extensions, Evenhay Farm near Ludlow is a stunning £250,000 ‘angular’ conversion of a three-bed Grade II listed 17th-century rural farmhouse and barn, featuring a new glass fronted annexe and glazed walkway.


The asymmetrical feature of the extension, created from larch cladding and a sedum roof compliment the old through references to the surrounding landscape. Mimicking that of the countryside surrounding the property allows the property to sit effortlessly in the landscape whilst also creating that wow factor.

The clients decided to move back to the area from Nottingham and had the vision to work with Alan Harris senior to turn the family home into a place where they could all live in and enjoy the stunning views.


Evenhay Farm, which is nestled just outside of Ludlow, was completed in two phases to ensure the family could remain on site during the complicated build.

The barn was the first task, with it taken down brick-by-brick, numbered and then rebuilt to create the new two-bed self-contained property with kitchen and living space that can be used by visitors or as a potential future Airbnb opportunity.


Once this was complete, then moved into the conversion to allow for the modernisation and extension of the main Grade II listed cottage.


This involved a considerable kitchen expansion and the creation of a glazed walkway that leads to the new, stunning annexe that is locally being referred to as ‘the ski slope’. Here there is a shower room, dedicated living space and a master bedroom, with the focus on delivering 270° views of the Herefordshire countryside.

Vic Johnson, founder of JDP said, “We’ve loved working on this project, a project that has taken a childhood home and transformed it into a property that allows the family to live together again and maximises its beautiful surroundings.”


The client concluded: “This is our dream home and Matt and the team have done a fantastic job listening to our vision and always putting our best interests at heart. We’re so proud of it and it’s great we’ve been able to share the construction of the project with Tinie Tempah and the team at Extraordinary Extensions.”
