A detailed planning consent has been approved for the conversion of two existing barns within the curtilage of a Grade 11 Listed building in a desirable village setting, some eight miles south of Bath. A new application seeks to form the two barns into one detached four- bedroom dwelling of approximately 2000sq.ft., to include a ground level extension into the enclosed kitchen garden. The plans indicate courtyard parking, through an existing double- gated vehicle access then into the beautiful and traditional walled garden. The extension has a lobby, utility, plant room, bin store and a kitchen and family room, with a patio leading into the garden. The lounge and dining room lead in from the extension into the Grade 11 Listed barn. The first floor of this barn will have two bedrooms and two en-suites. Two further bedrooms and a bathroom are on the ground floor, in a long building leading off the Barn. The end of this section has a party wall with a neighbouring detached house. The converted barn will make use of reclaimed stone for the walls as necessary, under a clay plain tiled roof. The barn will have timber windows and doors and cast- iron rainwater goods. Internally the stone walls will be finished with breathable lime render and the timber stud walls finished with plasterboard. Reclaimed cobbles from within the barn will be used for the vehicle access and hardstanding. The single storey oak- framed garden room extension will be under a flat sedum covered roof.
