An RICS award–winning development of three bespoke homes set in the beautiful County Antrim countryside.
Nestled amongst the trees, old and new collide to create three breathtaking feats of architecture in the Copper Barns.
For in these new homes, award-winning architects McGarry-Moon have skilfully fused both old and new technologies to create sustainable, rural homes that are designed for the 21st century; homes that whilst referencing the original
black stone farmsteads have been dramatically reimagined to create award winning living spaces.
Although each dwelling is completely unique, they share the same architectural language and use a blend of salvaged stone, rheinzink, sustainable timber and glass to create contemporary homes that sit comfortably within their rural setting.
The Copper Barns are truly unique living spaces that are both striking yet subtle in appearance, never detracting from the original stone barns on which they are set.
All three barns are situated within a 4.5-acre, hamlet-style rural setting with uninterrupted views stretching across the Braid Valley, Slemish Mountain and the historic ruins of Skerry Church, perched atop a rocky outcrop and towering above the surrounding fields. Each property also benefits from private gardens and shared land including a wildflower meadow and mature hazel woodland.
The Copper Barns are in a perfect location for those who require a rural home. Known as the Garden Village of Ulster, the beautiful village of Broughshane is not only home to some of the best floral displays in the country; it also has a good selection of local shops, restaurants and pubs, and is just three miles away from the larger town of Ballymena.
