A true one-off, Walltown Byre is an eclectic country retreat that blends cutting-edge design and contemporary art with unabashed fun and a dose of philanthropy.
A centuries-old byre bristling with contemporary objets d’art, complete with a hot tub and dedicated entertainment barn
Sabina Forwood, the owner of the 17th-century Walltown Byre, set in 700 acres of rolling Northumberland countryside, does not do beige. As she says: “Life is colour. Colour is life – it’s everything. Colour is evocative; it’s sexy; it makes you think.”
So, if you like your interiors bland, look away now.
Filled with the unusual and unique, Sabina’s creative influence is evident in every inch of this property. After inheriting the working byre (the old English word for cowshed) Sabina worked closely with local specialists to convert the simple stone property into a stylish three-bedroom house.
