ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2015

Project Detail

Green Lane/Main Street, Ashley

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2015 Finalist

A farmhouse and its threshing barn have been converted into new dwellings as part of a four home development in the Conservation Area of the South East Leicestershire village of Ashley.

A partially demolished outbuilding was rebuilt on the same footprint to reinstate an historic thatched roof cottage that once occupied the site.

And a final new-build property is supplemented by the conversion of a former piggeries into a workspace/studio and garage.

Project Overview

The cluster of four properties are each bespoke designed for the needs and tastes of four individual clients.

Their detailing and use of materials responds to the local architectural vernacular and the rebuilding of the ‘lost’ cottage was desired by residents and the planning authority.

Local masons were used during the construction. They included detailing to the Northamptonshire ironstone, including coursed walls and dressed ironstone chimneys.

Ancillary buildings, such as the garages and studios, are largely constructed using high quality oak frames with ironstone infill.

A high level of environmental performance was required. All the buildings have a highly insulated envelope and many have underfloor heating.

Low water use fixtures and low energy appliances also contribute to a more efficient home requiring substantially less energy to meet the modern needs of a family.
