Hollonds  Farm

Hollonds Farm is regarded as an important landmark and site of special interest within the High Weald AONB, Conservation Area and on edge of Green Belt.

The proposed new dwelling will respect the existing farmstead, which is listed, using materials that are sympathetic and preserve the character of Hollonds Farm, including sandstone block walling, black timber weatherboarding and clay peg tile roofing.

The proposal respectfully and carefully works with the existing built structures on the site, extending the appearance of barns adjacent to the farmhouse, to ensure that the new dwelling integrates with the existing farmstead gracefully.

The extended, cantilevered first floor accentuates the linear form of these barns and frames the long distance views across the rolling fields.
