A development of two properties, Cedar House 2143 sq.ft plus 200 sq.ft garage, and Garden House 2010 sq.ft. in Butts Lane on the fringe of the attractive and desirable village of Stour Provost in the Blackmore Vale. A Conservation Area comprising mainly of period stone houses and cottages and an historic church. Situated outside the defined village boundary, and as such is considered to lie in ‘open countryside’ where the grant of planning consent for new buildings is strictly controlled. Both properties were built using Marnhull stone; sawn and split stone with stone quoins was used for Cedar House, while Garden House was built with random stone, thus providing individuality.
Surrounded by mature trees, 2 large Japanese red cedars form a natural boundary between Cedar House & Garden House. A Cotswold stone graveled drive provides ample parking. The land slopes gently from north to south and is principally laid to grass, providing large southerly facing gardens.
“Eddie Hudson and his team take great pride in the quality of their work, and we have found them a pleasure to deal with. They have finished each aspect of the construction of our new home to a very high standard, which has greatly increased our enjoyment of it.” – Graham Castle
My wife and I were lucky enough to get involved with Stourhomes very early on in the build process of our new home. Our sometimes wayward ideas were always diplomatically steered backed to the practical and achievable. Moving in day was as stress free as it could be and Stourhomes were all day to ensure matter ran smoothly. The post sale service we have received has been second to none and if we have any questions on any aspect of the house they are always on the end of the phone or will arrange a visit. – Dan Denham
In a Conservation Area, on the edge of the pretty rural village of Stour Provost, Stour Homes built to exacting standards two 4 bedroom traditional looking homes of local Todber stone.
To provide an external contrast, one house was built from cut stone, the other random stone.
