INTRODUCTION

Bundish Hall Barns consisted of two unusually large barn ranges in a secluded part of the Essex countryside that were converted into three prestigious residences by City & Country in 2004.

The large moated site is of Medieval origins and the moat itself is scheduled by English Heritage as an Ancient Monument.  Layers of heritage and environmental restrictions meant the designers had some enormous challenges including the following constraints:

  • Carisbrooke was a Grade II listed building which caused limitations with the subdivision of the barn
  • The midstrey of Carisbrooke could not be sub-divided so provided an enormous space and a ceiling of approximately 35ft.
  • Consent required prior to any work taking place from the DCMS (Department for culture, Media and Sport), including a watching brief with a consultant
  • As a scheduled ancient monument any works to the moat required consent from English Heritage and the use of approved methods
  • The Conservation Officer put restrictions on the number of windows and the style

The quality of the conversion was rewarded by early sales and a prestigious What House? Silver Award for Best Renovation in 2004.
