TRADITIONAL BUILDING TECHNIQUES
Careful restoration and repair of Stone Cottage; respecting the heritage and enhancing the original features
Farm Cottage is a really attractive detached property, being Grade II listed and dating back to 1760.
The property is on the historical register noting its coursed squared gritstone, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays, one room deep with rear outshut. Quoins. Central half-glazed 4-panel door; lintel inscribed 'Simeon Moorehouse 1769', jambs with tie-stones. Flanking and first-floor windows: 2 lights with central mullions removed and paired 4-pane sashes, stone surrounds.
First floor, centre: narrow round-headed window. Shaped kneelers, gable-coping, corniced stacks centre and end right. Thankfully the flanking single-storey additions are of no special interest to Historical England.
Currently in need of modernisation and refurbishment, there is also the scope for further extension, this is a project with lots of "bits" to it, work is to be done over time respecting the Client's budget. With the long term aim to apply for an extension, over the non important existing single storey extensions, which will accommodate a third bedroom.
