West Farm, Earsdon

Redevelopment of historic farmstead to create six new houses.

West Steadings Farm sits within the Earsdon Village Conservation Area and provides the setting for two Grade II listed buildings The farmstead is being subdivided into discrete plots for the creation of private residential accommodation and garden spaces. Each plot is to be clearly identifiable, and via a process of selective demolition and extension, utilise one of the original building structures as the basis for a single residence.

Historic building elements will be restored. New extensions will be clearly contemporary. The development will use a palate of materials complementary to the character of the con-servation Area. Stone from demolition will be re-used on site as far as possible. Steel, al-uminium, glass, untreated oak boarding and green roofing will be used for construction of contemporary interventions; purposely contrasted and clearly distinct from the original building fabric.
