Moorlands Farm -

High Specification

Moorlands Farm combines an attractive selection of conservation architect designed barn conversions with sensitively planned new homes, incorporating local materials and character features typical of the areas.

All properties feature high efficiency glazing, high levels of insulation and highly efficient combination boilers with underfloor heating and LED downlights. The new properties each have photovoltaic solar panels to the roof to generate electricity. Externally the properties are all set within landscape architect designed gardens and grounds and all benefit from off road parking.

Traditional Materials

Built with local Ham stone, vernacular brick, clay tiles and natural slates; new and old beautifully integrate to create a mature rural setting for these stunning, high specification homes.

Traditional materials used in a contemporary way, combined with a commitment to sustainable development make Moorlands Farm an exemplar of low energy living. The new build stone faced properties have been constructed with salvaged Ham stone from the demolition of the South Barn. Similarly, the garden walls in the courtyard and the roofs of the car port and bin store have been constructed using original clay bricks and Bridgwater Coulthurst pan tiles from the old barns. As little material as possible has been removed from site, with the dual aim of minimizing the carbon footprint of the development and retaining the 300 year history of Moorlands Farm.


Open Plan Kitchens

Each of the properties at Moorlands Farm has an open plan kitchen/dining area, some with the added benefit of a family room or sun room. Staircases are finished with Oak handrails and newel posts. A selection of the properties have feature fireplaces or stone fire surrounds designed for a wood burning stove and all properties are finished internally with high quality, traditional plasterwork. 

The high specification kitchens and bathrooms have been designed in Somerset by Mayflower and include a range of shaker style floor and wall units with integrated appliances, finished with Silestone or granite work surfaces. Bathrooms, en suites, cloakrooms and utility rooms feature Porcelanosa tiles and are furnished with Duravit white sanitary ware and Hansgrohe or VADO chrome fittings.

Exceeds Building Regulations

The thirteen new properties along Orchard Drive have been designed to exceed the National Building Regulations. They are constructed using highly insulated closed panel timber frames, manufactured in Oxford with timber from Scottish forests. All have photovoltaic solar panels on the roof to generate electricity for the home owner, LED downlights to the ground floor and wet rooms and triple glazing to reduce heat loss. They have highly insulated ground floors with under floor heating. The heating systems are powered by A+ rated, Which? Best Buy recommended, Worcester Bosch or Vaillant combination boilers.

Individual Character

The eleven barn conversions on Old Farm Walk have been beautifully crafted to create spacious bespoke homes, each with individual character and charm, all set in a landscaped courtyard and pedestrian farm lane. All have high efficiency glazing to reduce heat loss, LED downlights to the ground floor and wet rooms and highly insulated ground floors with under floor heating. The heating systems are powered by A+ rated, Which? Best Buy recommended, Worcester Bosch combination boilers.
