It is always pleasing when former clients return to us with an exciting new project, and we were therefore delighted to view Whitehouse Farmhouse, Nr Halesworth, for our clients.
This Grade II listed farmhouse, detached listed barn and extensive collection of nineteenth century agricultural buildings is in need of considerable repair and restoration. We have prepared a Heritage Appraisal for the entire site and have had positive meetings and pre-application response from the Local Authority regarding our repair and alteration proposal for the farmhouse. We are now focussing our attention on converting the detached sixteenth century thatched barn into living accommodation.
This will include the replacement of some unsympathetic mid twentieth century additions and the restoration of the main barn, while retaining the special character and charm which defines this beautiful structure.
