We were approached to help secure planning permission for the complete renovation and extensions to the former barn conversion at Burts Hall Farm, which benefits from glorious views out over the Somerset landscape. After extensive consultation with the local authority and a lot of toing and froing planning permission was eventually granted in Spring 2021.

The proposals sought to provide much needed additional open plan living accommodation with bi-folding doors connecting the dwelling to the glorious gardens. The works include renovation of the front of the property to provide more 'curb appeal' with a traditional pitched roof porch and matching pitched roof dormers to replace the existing flat roof dormers. At first floor level the new master bedroom suite includes a Juliet balcony to take in the spectacular views out across the open landscape.

The extension was designed to be sympathetic to the existing dwelling whilst providing a balanced contrast to the existing palette of materials through the use of traditional oak frames and horizontal cedar cladding. 

Works are expected to start on site Summer 2021
