We are excited to bring to the market this development of six luxury barn conversions in the charming, historical village of Earsdon, Tyne & Wear. A truly bespoke project, a real ‘one off’ of very high end building design. The result is nothing short of amazing. West Farm Steading offers both the location and architectural style that is very much in demand.
The developers, Monument Survey, Design and Build, specialise in the procurement of superior quality design and build projects and this is very apparent when you see West Farm Steading. They aim to provide the best possible experience for customers and they deliver the quality that you would expect to see at a luxurious bespoke development.
Concentrating on details and finishing touches is of the utmost importance to Monument, the impeccable interior design and high quality construction demonstrates this exceptionally well. You can see the effort and the lengths that Monuments very own in-house design specialists have gone to in order to create such luxurious properties.
This really is an extraordinary boutique development designed for contemporary living with a rural twist, set within this beautifully converted farm steading dating back to the 19th and 20th Century. A collection of six private, re-invented spaces with cutting-edge architecture and exquisite design, delivered with sensitivity and skill. West Farm Steadings are bespoke homes, with sleek styling and handcrafted features exuding a sense of unpretentious luxury.
Carefully built, with an abundance of natural materials, combined with construction standards of the highest quality, these former farm buildings pull off their polished and modern aesthetic, placing inspirational design alongside traditional elements. This is the ultimate in rustic, contemporary sophistication. A fusion of the past and present, along with a strong emphasis on line and form, these special homes are designed with abundant open spaces and natural light in mind. A harmonious mix of rural charm and high-end modern design, this development offers practical, luxurious living in a unique and desirable village setting just 2 miles from the North East Coast and 8 miles from Newcastle.
Generally the development has utilized a palate of materials complementary to the character of the conservation area. New materials have been clearly distinctive and purposefully contrast with the original building fabric. The development offers a sense of intimate enclosure and to some degree, due to its visual seclusion, a sense of separateness from the surrounding village too.
Newly restored with old time values these stunning, contemporary, family friendly barn conversions mix original farm features with freestanding fires, underfloor heating and top of the range bathrooms for indulgence with an authentic flavour. Barn conversions fit so perfectly into this new spirit we have nowadays of multifunctionality and flexibility. A particular sense of openness acts as a pivot for these homes. There really is a lovely flourish of modernity in a traditional space in each and every one of these spectacular properties.
These impressive barn conversions readily reveal their sturdy nature, organic character and intuitive design. These properties are, without doubt, country living in an urban setting at its very best, and with a build and finish quality of the highest standard. The developers have combined the best of history and craftsmanship with the freshness and thrill of the new. You’ll fall in love with the delicate fusion of old charm and contemporary indulgence as there is a perfect blend of traditional elegance with sumptuous modern comforts.
All of the properties have been given a new lease of life with the way the developer has united the humble and the high-end, these stylish homes feature a mix of country charm and contemporary interior design. Raw-edged simplicity and subtle opulence combine in these former barns that has been transformed into warm and luxurious places to live. Inside they couldn’t be more chic and homely, flooded with sunlight. There is a feeling of bijou luxury with plenty of space to spread in comfort.

The mix of humble nature and high-end contemporary interior design with a dose of country charm makes this stylish home hard to resist. We also love the traditional farmhouse feel.

Earsdon is a very pretty historical village in the borough of North Tyneside and is approximately 2 miles from Whitley Bay where you will find a gorgeous stretch of sandy beaches. From Whitley Bay you also have great transport links via the Tyne and Wear Metro line. There are also very highly regarded schools in Whitley Bay. The town is one of the few remaining in the UK that operates on a three-tier system, with first, middle and high schools. Earsdon Village feels like the perfect escape from city life, yet you’re in very close proximity to all amenities that you need.
