Buckinghamshire – Rustic Listed Farmhouse

The Challenge

Our clients wanted a real project – and found one in a really run down and dilapidated old farmhouse with outbuildings in need of total refurbishment. Key elements of the project included

  • A new family living space
  • Maintaining and enhancing the structure of the building
  • Fitting new windows and doors to increase thermal efficiency

As can be seen from the before images, this listed property has some real character and Appropriate Design Solutions were very happy to be involved in the project; providing Concept Design, Planning and Listed Building Consents for all aspects of the works.

It’s a big room with a high ceiling but the oak makes it feel really warm. Spending time together as a family is really important to us and this room is ideal for that. I can be in here and the children can be doing their homework or playing in the garden and I can still see them. It’s a beautiful building and we’re thrilled with it.

The Solution

A real key element was the removal of an old storage building and fitting a new kitchen family room space to accommodate the growing family. This allowed a new front door and porch to be fitted, giving a new hallway, utility room and transforming the way the house operated.

Key in the negotiation with the planners was the ability to provide a link to the existing farmhouse – part of the originally constructed section.

This was achieved through the clever use of Glass and Oak framework – giving the look and feel of the building heritage with the modern performance of up to date materials.

It was really good to get a significant increase in size too. Flooding the new space with light through glazed gables on both ends, and glazed walls to the side, the new building is truly the new centre of the house.
