Conversion of a redundant agricultural building into a residential dwelling. The development comprises of the refurbishment and conversion of a redundant agricultural brick faced barn into residential two bedroom living accommodation adjacent to the main farmhouse and the replacement of a detached brick built garage with an annexe double garage.
The proposal is to improve the external appearance of the building by placing the insulation externally and cladding the external walls with a new brickwork façade to the existing structure.
The existing barn is a brick faced two storey building for the most part, the rear of the building has approximately 1.5m high natural stone at the base of the rear elevation. The pitched roof is slated in Welsh grey slate to the front, and Macclesfield style stone slate to the rear. There is a detached single garage to the side, which we propose to demolish and re-build as a double garage.The barn is built into a bank which rises approx 1.5m from front to back.There are stone feature lintels and detailing to the door openings.The single garage is in very poor condition with corrugated steel pitched roof running front to back (perpendicular to the barn roof, and also the main farmhouse)
The proposal is to provide 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and a shower room, with a winding staircase to first floor lounge and kitchen with a W/C. The decision to put the lounge on first floor is to make best use of the views towards Bosley and the Cheshire countryside.
