Project Description

Modernisation and alterations to a listed farmhouse, cottage and outbuildings near Axminster, Dorset

This large attractive Grade II Listed 17th Century Farmhouse is in a rural location surrounded by fields in the Dorset AONB. The site also includes a separate 2 storey Cottage and numerous barns, sheds and outbuildings.

The buildings have been modernised with unwanted and unsightly additions removed and upgraded in a sympathetic and unobtrusive manor to enhance the setting of the listed building. The windows were all taken out and renovated along with the roofs. Internally the house has new lime plaster walls, new oak flooring and has been fitted out with the latest audio-visual technologies.

A new timber framed canopy replaces the metal framed conservatory, providing a contrast to the historic building whilst reflecting the agricultural surroundings.
