This stone farmhouse sits in amongst the remains of encampments of the Hadrian Wall Roman settlement with the Stanegate Road running through the garden. The house is set in the Northumberland National Park and because of its position attracted great interest when a planning application was made. The new owner wanted to renovate the existing house and build a new study over the single storey byer. There had once been a structure over the byer and it was decided that a timber solution might be acceptable to all involved. The massing of the windows was felt to be in keeping with some of the forms of construction used by the Romans and the solution was subservient to the massing of the main house.
