L&H were invited to design a new family home in the setting of a Grade 2 Listed farmhouse. The site in the Chilterns sits within the ‘Green Belt’ which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK.
Our design removes the new house from the existing and part-conceals the structure further downhill. With the use of folded green roofs, it appears as a small pavilion from higher up and does not detract from the openness of the greenbelt. The site location is very close to our design for Badgers View Farm (see here).
The accommodation includes a small annex flat and 3 en-suite bedrooms at first floor with a large open plan living area, games room and swimming pool on the lower ground floor. There is also special provision for the clients’ car collection and a separate car port with maintenance workshop. The existing house can be used as a guest house and/or annex and will be fully restored to its original condition and appearance.
