Freehold historic barn conversion
4 bed – 3  bath 



Parsley Barn, part of the Victoria Barns complex, stands as a testament to our dedication to quality and innovation in barn conversions. Located on Brinsford Lane, WV10, Parsley Barn is one of seven distinctive units that form a blend of historical architecture and modern living.

Challenges Faced and Overcome

  1. Water Supply: The most significant challenge across the Victoria Barns conversions was securing a reliable water supply. After extensive research and consultation, we resolved this by installing a borehole, ensuring a sustainable and dependable water source for all the units.

  2. Design and Space Utilisation: Transforming Parsley Barn into a three-storey unit was crucial to maximising the available floor area. This required meticulous planning to maintain the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of the barn while providing ample living space.

  3. Aesthetics and Road-Facing Walls: With one outer wall lacking windows and facing the road, achieving an attractive exterior was challenging. We employed creative architectural solutions to enhance the façade, ensuring it complemented the overall design of the complex while maintaining privacy.

  4. Limited Land Availability: The lack of extensive land surrounding Parsley Barn was another hurdle. However, we allocated a dedicated garden and patio space, and provided a garage and office area, making optimal use of the available land and enhancing the property's utility.

Features and Benefits

  • Quality of Finish: Parsley Barn boasts an exceptional quality of finish, with every detail meticulously crafted by skilled local artisans. The conversion preserves original features like massive wooden beams and trusses, seamlessly integrating them with modern amenities.

  • Semi-Rural Location: Nestled in the semi-rural setting of Coven Heath, the barn offers tranquil countryside views while being conveniently close to urban amenities. Residents can enjoy peaceful canal walks and access to national footpaths such as the Monarch’s Way.

  • Garage and Office Space: Each barn, including Parsley, comes with the freehold of a garage and office area. This additional space provides flexibility for various uses, from hobbies to additional storage, enhancing the property's functionality.

Project Details

Parsley Barn was constructed using authentic Staffordshire bricks, with a roof of renovated and re-laid tiles, ensuring the structure's historical integrity. It features a brand new, energy-efficient Worcester Greenstar gas boiler system with underfloor heating on the ground floor and premium radiators above.

The electrical installation complies with the latest IET regulations, and the interior showcases Porcelanosa tiling and solid oak finish fire doors. Safety is paramount, with a Texecom Veritas 8 Zone intruder alarm system and compliant sprinkler system.

Living Spaces

  • Ground Floor: Includes a lounge with French doors opening to the garden, a hallway with exposed oak beams and underfloor heating, and a stylish WC.

  • First Floor: Features two bedrooms, a landing with a feature oak beam, and a bathroom with premium fixtures.

  • Second Floor: Comprises two more bedrooms, a landing with a storage cupboard, and a shower room, all finished to the highest standards.


Parsley Barn exemplifies the perfect blend of historical charm and contemporary comfort, making it a unique and desirable home for the lucky owners
