New farmhouse, Hampshire

New farmhouse, Hampshire

This site, adjacent to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, was occupied by a 1970s house and outbuildings, which made no reference to local forms of architecture. The new design is for a traditional family home, designed to suggest a Hampshire Farmhouse and associated buildings. The main house is arranged over two floors, with attic level accommodation contained within a traditional steep-pitched roof. External walls are of flint and brick banding, a long established form of construction within the locality. A lower subsidiary wing links the main house to a new garage range, built as a traditional weather boarded barn. The secondary dwelling is replaced by a new modest oak framed building clad in weather-boarding. The building group as a whole is much more in keeping with traditional agricultural character of the area, undoubtedly enhancing the quality and character of the historic village.
