Thinking buildings have completed the technical design and tendering process for this beautiful new farmhouse project that recently started on site. Enabling works have been completed including the construction of a new out-building that provides a loft space suitable for the brown eared bats that are currently using the loft of the existing farmhouse. With the enabling works complete the existing farmhouse will be demolished.
The new farm house is classic and traditional in style, particularly to the front elevation and public view. The double fronted design is constructed of natural limestone walling with ashlar stone detailing, flush casement timber windows and doors and handmade clay roof tiles. Internally, the house is both grand and generous, featuring large formal rooms alongside a fabulous open plan living area with kitchen, dining and a sunken seating area with large bi-folding doors to the private garden. The design includes an oak framed car port that is attached to a further residential annexe.
Kingerlee Construction are the contractors with SWJ providing the Structural engineering.
Did you know?
Brown long eared bats are relatively slow yet acrobatic flyers compared to other species of bats. They require relatively large spaces to fly within and this is an important consideration when developing designs that affect or replace existing protected habitats.
