ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2015

Project Detail

New Hunt Manager’s Cottage, Great Bowden

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2015 Finalist

A family home for the Fernie Hunt’s manager, the new three bedroomed cottage is designed to provide modern living in a traditional setting.

The property has secure storage for vehicles and equipment in a large three vehicle garage whose roof space is capable of future conversion for accommodation of a stable hand.

The design brief enabled brick detailing and steep pitches to provide a fitting gate house to the entrance of the Fernie’s adjacent new equestrian facility. 

Project Overview

The new hunt manager’s cottage is a bold and solid traditional house with a modern twist.

Its design takes its lead from the rich variety of architectural styles in the previous redevelopment of the old stables and the existing Nether Green houses, including the strong detailing of the steep pitched roof.

The property is designed to allow for expansion and future development to meet the diverse roles of the hunt manager.

The project also included the reinstatement of trees previously lost to high winds and fungal damage, to re-establish the Nether Green street scene

Simple, serviceable landscaping is used to fit in with the country setting and rainwater is collected, stored and re-used.
