Floorplans For Moreton In Marsh, Gloucestershire


Detailed planning consent has been granted to build a new country house on the site of two former farm workers’ cottages (since demolished). The new house will provide about 2,637 sq ft of living accommodation (Gross Internal Area) on two floors. The family sized accommodation will provide a grand reception hall with staircase, three reception rooms, an open plan kitchen and cloakroom, plus five bedrooms and four bathrooms, accessed off a central galleried landing. Below is an under croft garage for several cars and a dedicated plant/utility room, the whole extending to a further 638.3 sq ft. An internal staircase gives access to the ground floor accommodation. The first floor gallery landing allows for natural passive stack ventilation thereby improving the air quality within the internal spaces and making it a more pleasant and healthy environment to inhabit.

The appearance of the east section identifies with the traditional character of the area by reflecting distinctive local features including red brick, chimney stacks, stone lintels, stone quoins and dormer windows whilst the west section comprises more contemporary glazing, timber boarding and slates. The character of the property is contemporary with high quality detailing that makes strong reference to the appearance and character of Diggets Barn and the agricultural character of contemporary buildings within the immediate area. The design will benefit from north-lit apertures to allow high levels of natural daylighting and reduce solar gain in the summer months. Details will include high performance thermal materials and reduced energy consumption.

The principal rooms of the house will have views or access to the surrounding gardens via a part raised terrace stepping onto the lawns with enormous scope to create landscaped gardens. The site extends to about 0.3 of an acre and enjoys a rural position with views over rolling countryside. Landscaping proposals seek to introduce hedgerows on the majority of the site’s perimeter as well as many additional trees. A Cotswold stone wall will bound the site on its entrance abutting the Fosse Way. The large plot offers a special opportunity for those seeking to build a new home in the Cotswolds.

Planning Permission was granted on 26 April 2019 for a replacement dwelling (Ref: 19/00919/FUL).
