This lovely 17th century, grade II listed farmhouse was lacking a large family/kitchen area and any decent connectivity with the surrounding land. We negotiated consent for the partial demolition of some later build which included a dark, pokey kitchen, and the construction of a substantial side extension with large bifold doors opening directly onto the garden.

Here you see the new extension as it is being built, with a beautiful zinc roof covering the access link between the original house and the new extension. The contemporary material slots comfortably underneath the slate roof and contrasts beautifully with the existing honey coloured stonework. When completed, this build will provide a stunning addition to this property.

Internally, the floor level had been raised as high as the first stair riser! Removing the impervious concrete and membrane, lowering the levels, together with other remedial work, cured the rising damp completely.

It is amazing what gems remain hidden behind later intervention. Underneath a thick layer of stone cladding emerged a wonderful inglenook fireplace and original Tudor window!
