A unique offering presents itself to the market with the permitted planning of ‘Broadlands Barn’. An exclusive, individual contemporary home awaits amongst a total plot covering an approximate 1.75 acres within Wiltshire Green Belt. A home of meticulous consideration, this fine build is set to span over 5,000 sq ft, with a striking yet effortless arrangement spanning two floors. Architecturally the property sings originality, yet modestly delivers exceptional living arrangements for the discerning, modern buyer. The proposed exterior of natural Stone and Corten Steel will house a flexible arrangement of internal accommodation, with abundant views across the ecologically considered gardens and lush greenbelt beyond via full height glazing. Originally constructed to serve as storage for the nearby fruit farm, the current detached building sits within an enviable plot, discreetly placed within the surrounding landscape on the fringes of the picturesque village of Box, nearby other quaint villages. Its placement offers convenience for access to the historic city of Bath, just some fifteen minute drive. Presently, the site consists of open fields to the south east aspect, with an expanse of tarmac to the north approach. Boundaries of dense mature planting and feather edge fencing frame the building, with a mature row of Poplar trees forming a windbreak to the north east. The existing structure is a five-bay steel portal frame design, with gable ends and a pitched roof, providing a wealth of floor space with an additional steel framed mezzanine level. The proposal incorporates the existing footprint, with a strong consideration to maximise existing space and light. Externally the proposed design offers unique, instantly identifiable architecture, with a sympathetic yet striking contrast against the existing landscape. A harmonious partnership of buff stone and Corten steel cladding provide aesthetic elegance whilst providing a practical, insulated shield for this elegant residence. The internal plan has been meticulously designed to celebrate modern day living, the ground floor incorporating open plan living space, a snug for quieter climes, complete with carefully considered utilitarian spaces to provide function and style in equal measure. A guest suite presents at the rear of the hall, before a staircase provides flight to the upper level. Various courtyards compliment the principal ground floor rooms. The principal bedroom is proposed to enjoy views from the rear aspect, complimented by a sizeable dressing area and en-suite. Three further bedrooms serviced by two additional bathrooms complete the north elevation, whilst a considerable rumpus room is placed to absorb breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape. The proposed gardens provide biodiverse landscaping, with a strong ethos on ecology and habitat creation, with the inclusion of a wild pond encouraging and enriching local wildlife. The planting of a wildflower meadow creates both aesthetic curtilage and further wildlife habitation. The site enjoys a rural location surrounded by Wiltshire green belt, however offers good commuting distance to the city of Bath, with the appeal of direct trains to London Paddington from either Bath Spa or Chippenham railway station. A selection of nearby independent public houses add appeal to the lifestyle that this wonderful proposal has to offer.
