The Stables, North Dorset

2020 – 2023

We have been asked to over see the re-development of an existing stable block once part of a larger estate. The property consisted of an L-shaped single and 2 storey block surrounded by a walled garden, within the Cranborne Chase AONB. We obtained planning permission to raise the roof level of the lower block to create an additional guest bedroom suite, along with a full double height extension for a further bedroom and ground floor snug.

Working with local craftspeople, we were able to retain the character and soul of this very special building whilst upgrading the fabric and services to include air source heat pumps to run the underfloor heating and thermally efficient aluminium heritage double glazing. Particular internal features include the new oak beam spanned kitchen ceiling and French limestone fire surround.

We are aiming for completion Summer 2023.
