Grade II 16th Century Listed Barn Conversion

It’s a lovely gesture to be invited to stay in a property delivered from the MRT Architects portfolio of completed projects.

This was a challenging conversion of a redundant Grade II 16th Century Listed Barn adjacent to a grand country house of a Jacobean Estate near Upton-upon-Severn in Worcestershire.

The Client’s brief was to create a living section at one end and a holiday letting part at the other.

After lots of negotiation with English Heritage and Conservation Officers Listed Building Consent was achieved due, we believe, to the carefully considered plans which retained a substantial part of the original features of the barn which were sensitively incorporated into the newly formed domestic interior.  New windows and doors were carefully inserted into existing openings without alteration to the fabric of this important historic structure retaining its character and enhancing the setting in this delightful location in the Severn Valley with a backdrop of the Malvern Hills.

A perfect staycation in this idyllic position in glorious countryside with interiors of great charm and comfort.

Moreton in Marsh Development near completion

Development is nearing completion for this bespoke collection of Cotswold houses and apartments in Moreton in Marsh.

The land for this attractive residential scheme was previously occupied by the former Cottage Hospital.

MRT were appointed to design and obtain planning permission which was successfully achieved under a Section 73 application approved by Cotswold District Council.

Of particular interest was the conversion of the original historic hospital building into four luxury two bedroom apartments bringing back to life a part of Moreton in Marsh recent past.

The old traditional limestone building was set adjacent to a new central residential green which creates the environment for 16 new houses arranged around this landscaped space providing a focal point with views, light and greenery.

Moreton Edge is due to be fully completed in March 2022.

Cotswold Gem in Ebrington

Our good friends and clients are on the move to Cheltenham after selling their home in Ebrington following work undertaken by MRT Architects some years ago. The house in the centre of this historic village is nestled between the ancient church and the renowned country pub.

This classic mellow stoned Cotswold gem was given a makeover which complement additional space created by sensitively located extensions and alterations. A new front door, porch and cloakroom was created and connected into the centre of the house. This created an opportunity to remove outbuildings and build a new kitchen and dining room. Each of these zones sits vaulted under a gabled roof with pointed windows and doors overlooking a newly landscaped area of the interesting raised garden. Upstairs the interiors are stylish with ensuite bedrooms and many period features.

MRT look forward to working once again with our client at their new home to exploit the potential for the opportunity to create wonderful interiors and harmonious exteriors.

Planning Permission Granted in Beckford

MRT has obtained planning permission to convert a detached three-bedroom property located in the beautiful village of Beckford, into a four-bedroom house with a loft conversion and rear extension. Along with these changes planning permission has also been granted for a garden room surrounded by a new patio, which will blend into the newly landscaped garden.

The proposals utilise a soft palate of materials including render, clay tiles and timber, to provide a stylish, modern design, breathing life into the tired existing house.

The ground floor proposals include a new entrance into the property with a snug, living room, boot room, wc, utility, kitchen / dining and seating area leading out onto the garden patio. This will be landscaped with paving, hedges and planters providing a variety of texture and pops of colour.

The first floor provides four bedrooms. Two have ensuites, and the master bedroom also boasts a new dressing area. The converted loft space will include an office and wc/shower facilities.

This promises to be an amazing transformation, capturing the clients brief and vision. Stay tuned as we provide updates of its progression on site!
