Ebrington is a splendid village in the North Cotswolds and its buildings demonstrate the typical Cotswold pattern of long, addititive blocks, with lean-to extensions with dormer windows and steep pitched roofs in the Cotswold tradition. The predominant walling material in the village is Cotswold rubble stone.
The site is the former farmyard of Home Farm and it fronts onto the village street enjoying superb views across the open countryside to the south. The listed Home Farm Cottage is the only building on the site to be retained and is the starting point for the development.
The proposals have been designed with the following priorities:
to provide an appropriate setting for Home Farm Cottage;
to infill the village street in a manner to compliment the historical fabric of the village;
to maintain the direct views from the village street over the countryside to the south.
The development comprises 17 new homes at a density of 29 houses/hectare including four affordable units. It has been designed in accordance with the Cotswold Design Guide to enhance the village setting with Cotswold stone walling to approximately 70% of the houses.
