The construction of a new build bespoke house from scratch at Carr House Farm is one of the latest developments form Aura. The stunning house has been constructed in Cotswold stone designed to replicate the appearance of a typical Cotswold style cottage. It is located on an incredible 16 acre site in Adlington and features some elaborate window sets including a main central gallery window on the ground and first floors. The roof was constructed from reclaimed stone, much of which has been salvaged from the original property and the windows are currently being bordered within beautiful bronze casements.
The project which commenced in October 2015 will develop into the refurbishment of the adjacent redundant barn. This was originally built in Cheshire brick with stone roofing, which is currently in a state of dis-repair. The foundations will be underpinned and defective sections of the walls will be sympathetically dismantled and rebuilt to incorporate brick to match the original. The stone roof will be re-fixed and fully restored.
Ultimately the client’s intentions are to link both the house and restored barn to provide an outstanding new build house with barn style annex. The final section of the contract will entail extensive external groundworks to present a York stone paved driveway, with impressive stone pillars and electronic gates.
