The re-development of a previously glorious farm located within the North Cheshire Green Belt on a stunning site overlooking its own private stream and estate.
The properties which make up the farm are:
A 16th Century grade II listed house which has been serious decline for many years and is in need of significant repairs to its timber frame.
Our proposal is to fully restore the building both internally and externally and add a contemporary extension to the rear. This will update the internal layout to include an open plan kitchen and master suite to better suit modern-day family living. The design is respectful yet contemporary to complement the character of the host historic building. The extension frames the views of the surrounding landscape whilst rooflights bring natural light deep into the building.
1no. 380 m² // 4,090 sqft
The existing brick barns are to be sensitively restored and converted into three individual dwellings which will have views of the restored farmyard and proposed landscaping with individual private gardens.
Total 565 m² // 6,082 sqft
A set of three identical dwellings which have been sensitively designed to frame the existing farmyard and create a linear line of structures opposite The Brick Barns. They feature soft stone roofs to match Old Hall, with red brick at ground floor to echo the barns opposite but with a soft pink brick at first floor to enhance their contemporary nature.
There are large areas of glazing, and sliding doors at ground level allowing the family spaces to open up and connect with the garden and the wider landscape across the fields.
