The site lies to the north of Belvedere Castle (Haldon Belvedere), some 6 Km south-west from Exeter and west of Doddiscombsleigh and Higher Ashton. A large existing barn lies in the north-west corner of a large field, just off the lane and nestled against Webberton Wood to the north.
The existing barn was historically two separate barns that were joined up with a connecting roof. Our proposal was to create 2 x c.2,475 sq ft (230M2) houses, each sitting within its own walled enclosure on the footprint of the existing barn and hardstanding – this makes reference to a farmyard typology. The 2-storey houses sit against the walled courts at right angles to each other, so one facing westwards, the other south.

The gated courtyards would shield vehicles from view from the lane. The hardstanding area to the east remains open and provides gated access to the field.

Each house adopts a rural palette of masonry walls at ground floor (local stone) and a dark stained timber-clad upper storey. A chimney reinforces domesticity and the rural character of the design. Roofs in slate.
