Stour Row, Dorset
Blynfield lies in a prominent position on the outskirts of the unspoilt rural Dorset conservation village of Stour Row, west of Shaftesbury. With its far-reaching views in all directions, elegant architecture and strikingly modern interior.
Designed specifically to be sympathetic and harmonise with its surrounding landscape, this property focuses on the increasingly popular use of oak timber frame, alongside the equally essential emphasis on light and energy efficiency.
The aesthetic of the 19th century cottage that it replaces will be preserved, as we are re-using the stone, maintaining the building’s character and charm, whilst improving it with 21st century technologies.
With plenty of free-flowing space, the ground floor will be largely open plan, with oak beams throughout forming the perfect marriage between traditional and more contemporary design.
On the west side of the home will be a sun room, capturing perfectly the light from both the south and the west and enhancing the natural light of the property. Upstairs, the property can have 3 or 4 bedrooms on the first floor, two with en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom.
Also featured on this 0.3 acre site will be a double car port, with workshop above, providing additional space and versatility.
Completion: Summer 2014
