Huxbear Barton

Listed Building Extension

01. The Brief

Our clients needed an architect in Teign Valley, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their Listed Building Extension

02. Project Detail

The owners of this property wished to refurbish the existing house whilst extending the property out to enjoy the generous gardens. The property forms part of the original listed complex of Huxbear Farm.

The original barn, dug into the hill-side, suffered from single aspect that looked onto the parking area. No connection with the substantial garden area was provided. Thus, the proposals aimed to create a small, stone and glass extension that will be sympathetic to the original barn, and the listed status of the neighbouring house, whilst creating a contemporary and light internal space that connects the house to the garden.

The property had a previous difficult planning history, but permission was awarded for the new proposals with no complications. Due for completion in January 2014.

04. Client Testimonial

van Ellen + Sheryn Ltd. have worked with me on a number of projects in South Devon, ranging from the refurbishment of a 1930’s period property, to high-end private dwellings and a new-build housing scheme. In each project they have provided an excellent and comprehensive service, combining contemporary design, planning knowledge and technical expertise. It has been an enjoyable process working with them, and I would not hesitate in recommending their services in the future.
