Nestled into a steep site this imaginatively designed barn house is 'upside-down' to take advantage of the stunning views over the Helford river in Cornwall. The first floor open plan living rooms are set into a canopy of old oak trees. Other features include arch braced trusses, extensive balconies and a spiral staircase.
