Village centre development in Bradley, Hampshire

Village centre development in Bradley, Hampshire

A small group of new houses on a derelict farmyard, within a Hampshire hamlet, included one small redundant barn next to the village pond suitable for conversion to a single house. The main part of the old yard was developed with a square courtyard of four small Gothic cottages. With a simple rectangular plan under steep pitched roofs, the buildings are decorated with banded brickwork, a central pointed arch, decorated timber barge boards and tall wooden finial in the apex of each roof. As a contrast, the barn was transformed into a small classical house. The simple regular elevations are decorated with ground floor window surrounds and an unusual door case with griffin brackets.
