May Tree Farm, Rhodes Minnis

Extension and Refurbishment of Farm House

We were instructed to design and prepare a planning application and working drawing package. Our brief was to improve the curb appeal of the house, create a more fitting front entrance, improve utility areas, design an extension to the kitchen to create a dining area with good connection to the garden and tore-design the master bedroom suite. 

Four different areas of intervention were proposed:

1. To infill the ground floor recess and door on the front elevation. This improved the aesthetics of the elevation, enlarged the ground floor bedroom . and provided space for the relocation of the cloakroom.

2. An extension to the side elevation to create an attractive entrance, spacious hallway and boot room.  Under a double gable roof the entrance benefits from being sheltered and has a vaulted ceiling with glazing up to the ridge to provide the maximum level of natural light to the internal hallway and staircase.

3. A rear extension connected to the kitchen to provide a dining area and improved outlook from the kitchen.  The extension has a vaulted ceiling and full height glazing over bi-folding doors to the gable end.  It has a second set of doors on the side further improving the rooms connection with the garden.

4. A ground and first floor extension replacing the covered balcony at the rear to improve the appearance of the rear elevation and create extra space in the living room and master bedroom.

In addition to the above the property was further improved by replacing windows and timber boarding and the existing walls were re-rendered.
