Country Estate

Grade II Listed Farmhouse & Recreation Barn

AO were first approached about this property by Prime Purchase whose client had acquired the heritage site – including an original 9000sqft farmhouse and 5000sqft of outbuildings and ancillary residential spaces, including Grade II listed workers cottages – set in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.

The site was tired and had been unsympathetically extended in the 1960s, leading to a full refurbishment programme and extension to create a c.6000ft2 family home, with additional single dwelling cottage accommodation, and new detached garaging and recreation barn - sensitively designed to sit within the local vernacular.

Working alongside Planning Consultants, JPPC, planning was achieved via three separate (yet linked) applications, principally to enable Listed Building Consent to be reviewed and agreed for the cottages, whilst works to the farmhouse commenced.

The new build double height recreation barn – intended to reflect local agricultural structures – utilises a Crittall-style glazing system (that picks up on tradition metal framing methods) and local ironstone and stonesfield roof tiles (original details found in the farmhouse and cottages), surrounding a robust oak frame constructed with large timber barn doors. Internally, a mezzanine cinema room can be accessed via the spiral staircase, with home gym and entertainment spaces at ground level.

A beautiful parterre planting scheme transforms the grounds, with beds and gravel paths arranged in a stunning, symmetrical formation - and more recently, the terrific addition of a large kitchen garden.
