The plot next door to their village home provided the perfect site for David and Susan Lockwood to self-build a traditional dwelling in keeping with the surrounding conservation area.
While planning consent proved tricky, the final result is a stunning heritage-style farmhouse with plenty of character.
The main entrance features glazed doors to the north and south to maximise natural light. It leads to a spacious hallway, where arrowslit windows create an interesting feature.
At the far end of the corridor is a single-storey TV lounge with a vaulted ceiling, created by converting an existing brick outbuilding (formerly a milking parlour) and integrating it into the new property.
Upstairs, there are four generous-sized bedrooms, three of which have their own ensuites, with a family bathroom serving the other.
The master suite is located at the rear of the house, in the two-storey glazed zone overlooking the garden, and benefits from a dressing room. The office has been kitted out with drainage for an ensuite to allow future conversion into an additional bedroom.
