“We have people stopping in the street, looking at it and taking photos.”
White, traditional, and loved for its simplicity.
This Cedarspan™ barn is set on three acres of land amongst a homestead and cottage, complementing its surroundings.
“We wanted a barn, and thankfully Cedarspan™ had the design we were after. They had the traditional style.”
Mel and Matt chose a custom-size Loft Barn in board and batten with barn-style double doors.
“I think board and batten is making a comeback. The fact that it’s been around for a long time, it is quite on-trend.”
“The barn doors attract people. It’s a huge feature.”
And a photographer’s dream.
“Every week, I have a photoshoot.”
“Oz Design, Flower Power, Pet Barn, and Married at First Sight have filmed here.”
Away from the lights and cameras, the barn takes on practical use.
“My husband races cars. We needed something that could be multi-purpose, a larger three-car garage.”
It was 2016 when Sydney couple Mel and Matt hit the road searching for a tree change, settling in Grose Wold.
“We ended up finding this house outside of the bubble that we lived in forever, and we are happy that we moved up here.”
“We needed a single-story house because my husband had some big health issues, and he couldn’t manage the stairs very well.”
The barn has since provided Matt with a space to pursue his hobbies.
“It’s man heaven.”
“He adores that space. He loves it.”
“Everyone needs to have their space to go to unwind. He is such a good handyman, so he makes things and builds things.”
Mel says she and her husband have embraced the rural lifestyle since fleeing the big smoke.
“The barn certainly goes a long way to give us that feeling.”
“It did start us off on a beautiful path of designing the rest of the three acres.”
And now, Mel has a new vision for the property.
“Our plan moving forward is to open our garden for people who want to visit. Our barn will feature heavily in what we do here.”
