Grain silos are not at the top of every dream property list, but this unconventional conversion might just change your mind. Towering among the rolling Berkshire farmland, these two former agricultural grain silos, known as Stubwood Granary, are currently listed for £1,950,000 ($2,725,027.53). And the modern home has rewritten everything we thought we knew about farmhouses.
The quirky, high spec conversion consists of three stories, which all pay homage to the property’s rich heritage, whilst oozing with chic, open-plan modernity. This distinctive style is epitomized within moments of entering the atrium-style entrance hall that leads to the exquisitely bespoke curved kitchen.
From the kitchen, the circular maze leads to the raised terrace, which overlooks the picturesque pond area – the perfect spot for a weird and wonderful housewarming party, where the DJ will particularly benefit from the lack of neighboring properties.
Despite its wholly contemporary aesthetic, the floor also exhibits nods to its past through a modern take on a rustic wood burner and a boat room for those inevitable muddy wellies.
The pièce de résistance of the property, however, is perhaps the striking steel and glass-designed winding staircase that flows between the floors and offers far-reaching rural views from the sun-drenched landing areas. This staircase also leads to the five bedrooms – one of which is the impressive circular master bedroom – complete with an authentic vaulted ceiling, and a stylish ensuite bathroom, and stunning rural views.
Admired for its flexibility, the top floor offers another double bedroom and vaulted wetroom and a durable space that can be used as a dressing room or study with a mezzanine.
While the glorious interiors of this impressive home are something to behold, the exterior is no less impressive, as the structure retains its agricultural and utilitarian charm, alongside its modern windows, lighting, and planting.

The home is surrounded by 0.86 acres of verdant grassy farmland that stretches down to the large pond. It is surrounded by willow and oak trees that envelope the estate and act as the perfect backdrop for those who want to indulge in the undisputed glory of the Berkshire countryside.
Stubwood Granary, located at Salisbury Road, Hungerford, Berkshire, is currently listed by Knight Frank. While we can’t all move in, we can certainly all take style notes from this thoroughly unorthodox and painfully stylish property.
