The former malthouse in Barnby Dun has been beautifully restored into over 48 homes, after being pulled back from the brink of losing the historic building forever. Viewings of its luxury apartments can be arranged now.
This unique development is located in the old railway sidings in Barnby Dun into the new plans consisting of spacious and contemporary 2, 3 and 4 bedroom new homes.
The scheme includes rejuvenating the old Edwardian grain store, known as The Maltings which will be a sympathetic conversion into residential apartments.
The redevelopment of the malthouse building to one, two, three and four bedroom apartments retains elements of the original architecture which have been seamlessly blended with a contemporary design. Restored features include the original wooden trusses, exposed brick walls and a striking central glazed atrium.
The historic machinery workings – which were originally used in the process of converting cereal grain into malt – have been displayed as a special feature in the central atrium of the newly named The Maltings.
Original trusses also combine with modern glazed walkways to project a spacious and modern twist.
To show the sheer scale of The Maltings, four levels of the building can be viewed upwards from the ground floor.
The original roof structure has been enhanced by using modern glazing to bathe the communal areas with light – and seating areas with greenery will complete the peaceful ambiance.
Throughout the refurbishment, hidden gems were continually discovered. It was vital to Colin that anything of historical interest should be saved. Retaining the character of the building was of paramount importance.
Original quarry tiles on communal walkways
Many man hours were spent lifting, cleaning and re-laying original quarry tiles along the communal walkways. The cast iron columns which originally supported the structure were also cleaned and repainted.
