Farmstead is a new substantial luxury family dwelling set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens. The development has been built on the site of an existing pig farm, which has been demolished, to make way for a development of 5 luxury dwellings, all set within their own private estate. The dwelling has one main body with various wings leading off from it.
The wings leading to the main body are of traditional construction with exposed timber joists at first floor with isolated steel beams.
The roofs were all traditional cut timbers with structural ridge beams and ceiling collars.
The foul water from the site was also discharged into the existing public sewer, which required a new manhole chamber to be constructed in the existing highway, this also required a section 106 agreement.
The main body of the dwelling was steel framed with exposed timber joists at first floor.
The dwelling also incorporates a small basement area and swimming pool, these were constructed out of reinforced hollow blocks on reinforced strip foundations.
