Foldyard Cottage :

Foldyard Cottage, originally a barn and latter converted into living accommodation, is a traditional 19th Century brickwork character property in a rural location in Bewholme, East Riding of Yorkshire. The existing property has large outbuildings attached which were originally cart or tool sheds used by the farmstead. The project comprises the renovation of the cottage and conversion of the outbuildings to form additional living space to develop a substantial 5 bedroom equine property. To unify the cottage with the outbuildings the project also incorporates a glazed link extension and within the expansive land associated with the buildings, a new access from the highway and new driveway has been developed and new stable and garage facilities provided.

 

The various facets to the development presented a challenging planning process during which detailed and comprehensive information regarding many different elements was complied. The information included structural surveys, heritage statements, highway speed surveys, arboricultural reports and a collaborative relationship with East Riding of Yorkshire planning personnel was essential to gaining planning approval at the first attempt in July 2011.

 

The design associated with the renovation of the existing cottage, which presented considerable structural defects necessitating partial demolition, required a sensitive approach to maintain the character of the buildings whilst generating high quality and contemporary living spaces. The detailing and fenestration to the exterior of these building is also carefully considered to reinstate character features.
