Farmhouse, Ruston Parva

Refurbishment, 2008

This Victorian farmhouse set in 28 acres had been vacant for a number of years and represented a challenge. The ancillary buildings around the site and a collapsed dairy gave an opportunity to give the Client a substantial country house with attached garaging, offices and games rooms and set apart from the house a substantial brick cart shed with a granary over.

The collapsed dairy gave the opportunity of building a two bedroomed single storey dwelling for use by staff or aged relatives although it has not yet been realised.
