fter many happy years in a barn they had

converted into a family home, interior

architect Susie Pfeiffer has moved it

on to the next stage for her business and

family, with a fabulous modern extension.

The best houses are not just inert stacks of

bricks and mortar, but more like living things

which constantly change over time. This is

just one of these houses which has grown

– literally, it has more than doubled in size –

with Susie, her family and their businesses.

The journey started when Susie and her husband

Stephen bought the original old barn in 1992,

seeing the great potential in it to create a unique

family home, in the most beautiful South Downs

landscape, convenient for Brighton, Lewes and

Eastbourne and just three miles away from

the coast.

“It had been an old barn with horses

in it,” says Susie. “It had no floors or

dividing walls when we took it over.”
