Five homes have been built at Bull in the Oak Farm in a project which saw the farm relocated to its farmland and the former site redeveloped with new structures emulating farm building styles.
The previous farm buildings had become separated from their farming land by a busy road. Interlinking planning applications enabled their relocation and the freeing up of their former site for the new homes.
The five new contemporary luxury dwellings were designed in the shapes of Dutch barns and traditional brick farm buildings.
Farming had taken place at Bull in the Oak for more than 100 years but had become increasingly difficult. The radical approach of relocating the farm to its fields provided a new farmhouse and buildings for livestock and machinery.
The new homes are arranged in a south facing courtyard formation. Each home has been designed with a bedroom and en-suite bathroom on their ground floor, to meet the requirements of Lifetime Homes.
The new buildings blend in with the landscape and together resemble a farmstead. The variation in roof form and materials including timber cladding and brickwork echo actual farm buildings.
Each of the four and five-bedroom houses has its own distinctive character.
