Listed Building Development, Amersham

Conversion of a Grade 2 Listed farmhouse and outbuildings, into 3 new luxury homes. [Phase 1 of 3]

This is the first phase of the development and concerns the main farmhouse.

The history of this land and property dates back to 1166 when it was owned by the Earl of Essex and the current house dates back to 1540. A sympathetic design solution was essential, as was a methodical approach to planning matters, including ongoing liaison with the Historic Buildings Officer.

Original features have been preserved, including the wonderful brick and flint external skin, original internal paneling which dates back to 1619, and the Tudor front door. However, there were a few things we had to replace to meet today’s building regulations. One being the roof. There are some stunning options at roofing cedar park (or similar) but we had an idea to restore any old slabs for the new roof to keep the property looking as genuine as possible.
