The consented new main house incorporates a barn conversion and extension of Bullsland Farm which will provide about 6,912 sq ft of accommodation. The new design scheme by Jerry Tate architects has been created to sit within the historic and typology planning guidance. An overall landscape strategy has been prepared by landscape architects, Adams Habermehl, with an aim to respect the historic agricultural nature of the site.
The intention is to retain and protect all structures on the site which are of historic significance, whilst removing the 20th century buildings of low architectural value that disrupt the historic pattern of the farmyard. The architects propose a new ?barn-type' structure to house additional accommodation, as well as extending one of the existing ancillary barns. These new structures will reinforce the farmyard in line, whilst remaining architecturally subservient to the key existing listed buildings.
There are three types of existing buildings on the site; key historic buildings which are Grade II Listed, ancillary historic buildings which are curtilage listed and modern agricultural buildings which are not listed.
Key historic buildings are the existing Farmhouse and Threshing Barn. The ancillary buildings which are curtilage listed include the Hayloft and three further structures.
The modern agricultural buildings on the site date from the late 20th Century and are generally large ?shed' type structures, concrete or steel framed, with metal and concrete block external walls. There are three particularly large sheds with shallow roofs which are planned to be removed.
Planning Reference: 13/0023/LBC
Listed Building Consent: New/replacement dwelling through conversion and extension of existing barns on the site, alterations to and refurbishment of curtilage Listed buildings, demolition of 20th Century agricultural buildings on the south of the site and associated landscaping.
The Farmhouse comprises a galleried Kitchen and Utility Room.
A door leads to a dual aspect Office at the front of the house and a second door leads into a Stairway Hall with access to the Sitting oom and Drawing Room. Under the stairs there is a small Cloakroom. The first floor comprises a Master Bedroom Suite with athroom and Dressing Room, 2 further Bedrooms, one with an en suite Shower Room, a family Bathroom and a second Dressing Room/4th Bedroom.
The Threshing Barn is adjacent to the Farmhouse, currently used as a party/banqueting room, storage and daily garaging. A modern extension has been added to the rear, which provides stabling and open stores.
The Hayloft is positioned beside the entrance gate which has been converted into additional accommodation. The ground floor comprises two Offices, Kitchen and Kitchenette, Gym, Cloakroom and Shower Room. Stairs lead up to a 2 Bedroom Flat with open plan Living Room with Kitchen and Shower Room. Attached at the back of the hayloft are a number of ?lean to' stores.
There is a modern barn opposite the hayloft which is ideal for
storing multiple cars. Beyond is a large Atcost Barn and one further Open Dutch Barn.
The proposed site for the main house is a collection of attached farm buildings made up of a Timber Barn, Old Pigsty, Brick Building and a Silo.
Bullsland Farm provides an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a farm with approved planning permission for redevelopment into a stunning contemporary home of about 7,000 sq ft within the Green Belt. The proposed design incorporates a selection of outbuildings and further accommodation set within 178.67 acres of land. The proposed house will provide spacious, modern living in a private position, taking advantage of the exceptional views. Beyond the current buildings, the land predominately consists of paddocks, woodland copses and an orchard south east of the main house.
