We are pleased to have secured listed building consent approval for the conversion of an early 19th-century grade II listed granary barn into a home office/study. This sensitive conversion will include improving the thermal performance of the building to make it fit for habitable use whilst maintaining the key architectural features of the barn.
The application also included approval for a detached garage and log store at the front of the property. The garage will provide much-needed shelter and protection for vehicles and storage.
Due to the sensitivities of the site and the historical importance to the village of Lower Froyle, we worked in close collaboration with the conservation team at East Hants District Council to ensure a successful approval that was respectful of the original barn and its features.
The initial feasibility designs also included a glazed link between the granary barn and the dwelling. This element is currently under review and could be incorporated into the scheme.
