Rushing up the picturesque driveway, swerving the odd pheasant on route, little did I know I would be driving back through the rolling Cotswold hills, having mentally bought my dream home in a truly idyllic venue. Think of a beautiful view you have once seen, think of luxury accommodation you have once stayed in, times both these by a zillion and even then you will not come close to what Cotswold Home Makeovers has to offer with the stunning barn conversions they can create.

Very much a case of new from old, their most recent project had been created from original dairy buildings set in beautiful Cotswold countryside with only the sheep for neighbours, privacy and exclusivity are paramount. Owner of Cotswold Home makeovers Tom Bialoskorski said: “Our clients love the personal touch we offer and in a hands-on capacity manage the entire project from start to finish – which is a really important factor in giving our clients the peace of mind that they are in the best hands.”

With a wealth of knowledge in design and build, accompanied with a dedicated and passionate team ensures Cotswold Home Makeovers can work with clients to create a truly bespoke, beautiful and captivating project. They are able to completely transform room layouts, create space you never thought possible, add stunning extensions while incorporating the very best materials in the market. You name it; they can pretty much provide it, meaning the project is always flawless.

The space and design that Tom and his talented team have created for this particular barn conversion is truly exceptional. In the Dairy is a stunning reception/sitting room which has been created for a whole family to relax together. There is a mezzanine that is perfect as a workshop area and also a purpose-built boardroom for family business. The impressive Courtyard area is fully equipped for outside dining, BBQs or just relaxing and taking in the beautiful views.

The passion and pride that Tom and his team have for each and every individual project they work on is truly heartwarming. Tom enthused: “We had a clear plan from the start with what we wanted to do, and project managed the entire build process. For this particular project we have aimed to retain the aesthetics of the old barn from the outside, including the huge green barn doors which, after some restoration work, look fantastic. Every little detail has been taken into account. The whole barn conversion is run off biomass, and we also have an eco-friendly wood burning hot tub. The biomass boiler runs off woodchip, which we feel adds to the desired business model.”

Pictures just don’t do this hidden gem justice and once you proceed up the main driveway leaving the world behind, you will be itching to put in an offer for yourself. Tom said: “We welcome any potential clients to come and have a look for themselves and have a chat with us over coffee to see what we can do for them. We are really passionate about the barns we create and want to share it.” Combine all this with the care and personal touch for their client, means that not only with Cotswold Home Makeovers do you end up with your dream home but a truly unique client experience that I feel you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
