This up and  down farmhouse is located in an oasis of southerly facing fields and only a stone’s throw from town and the rugged beauty of the north coast.

With typical single storey additions associated to those seen in the 1960s and 1970s the character of the cottage was trying to poke its head out to be seen. These proposals remove those additions and albeit increase the accommodation by another 60% they are supplied within a subservient and sympathetic form. Extended to the rear and rationalized at the front this home is being recreated to give the family many years of flexibility and enjoyment.

A new formal entrance is incorporated with the landscaping on the main elevation and this allows the main bulk of extension to be at the rear (this aspect frames the view to the Atlantic) this will be a complete home.
