2 storey extension to main house and conversion of stable building into 2 holiday lets

Mill Farm is situated in a beautiful rural location with farmland adjoining the River Yeo.

The proposal included comprehensive remodelling and modernisation of the existing farmhouse including partial demolition of an existing lean-to. The building works included reconfiguration of the internal layout to provide two additional bedroom suites, a separate dining room and enhanced living accommodation with views out towards the farmland. This was achieved through 2 new wing extensions either side of the farmhouse as well as 2 additional wings to the rear.

Materials from the demolition works were reclaimed and where possible reused to match the existing fa├žade. Extensive landscaping and external works were also designed by BoonBrown including a fire pit and outside kitchen with pizza oven, BBQ and log store.

The former stable buildings were converted into two holiday lets and the existing cow shed and garage transformed into ancillary accommodation and offices to serve the main house.
