The scenery seems plucked from Constable. But other parts of High Barn in deepest Suffolk are modern classics: the hot tub to lounge and laze, the satellite TV for family movies, the wifi for keeping in touch, and the crackling woodburner for evenings of long drinks and happy chatter.
If Constable could somehow drop by, though, he’d approve of the vaulted ceilings, the inglenook fireplace and the exposed beams. Even the two acres of grounds seem to be a tribute to the rural pastures that he captured on canvas. Today, though, you’ll probably prefer to pop a cork on the patio rather than paint the landscape.
Outside, the hot tub’s bubbling, the sun is out and the barbecue is ready. As it sizzles, the kids can shoot some pool in the games room or play ping-pong on the patio. High Barn is made for making memories. Maybe you’ll even be inspired to commit them to canvas, Constable-style.
