HOUSE NEAR ILMINSTER

CONSERVATION & EXTENSIONS

SOMERSET

The Grade II listed farmhouse near Ilminster, Somerset, is seventeenth century in origin, but unfortunately had been subject to unsympathetic additions and alterations throughout the twentieth century.

 

The brief called for the removal of two flat-roofed extensions and a lean-to canopy at the rear of the house.  A new gabled entrance volume houses a boot room at the ground floor and a family bathroom at the first floor.  A new two storey wing provides a kitchen / breakfast room on the ground floor and master bedroom suite on the upper floor.  Connected to this is a garden room studio that takes advantage of the splendid views over the valley to the southwest.

 

Traditional materials used include: walls generally in lime render, roofs in clay double Roman tiles, copings in Ham stone, windows and rainwater goods in black metal.  The garden room is constructed in an oak frame with lime render panels.   The master bedroom suite features oak king post trusses and purlins.
