This group of farm buildings was purchased with planning consent to convert the two main barns into substantial houses, and subsequently listed building consent was obtained to modernise and alter the 17th century farmhouse. Consent was later obtained to convert the former stable into a ‘thatched cottage’.
The barns are both individually listed and were in need of serious structural work to enable conversion including the installation of mostly new foundations under the existing main timber framing.
The site is located in the Metropolitan Green Belt near to junction 3 of the M25 and also very much in the commuter belt.
The project was awarded the 1977 Design award for best conversion by Sevenoaks District Council
