Moorlands Farm is a high specification, sustainable, low energy development set within the grounds of a nineteenth century model farm in the heart of the popular village of Merriott.
Moorlands Farm combines an attractive selection of conservation architect designed barn conversions, terraced, semi-detached and detached new homes comprising two, three and four bedrooms, all set within landscape architect designed grounds and gardens, with the benefit of off road parking.
It is built with local Ham stone, vernacular brick, clay tiles and natural slates. New and old carefully integrate to create a mature rural setting for 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. We have removed as little material from site as possible with the dual aim of minimizing the carbon footprint of the development and retaining the 300 year history of Moorlands Farm.
Each of the properties has open plan kitchen dining areas, some with the added benefit of a family room or sun room. All 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 traditional plaster, rather than the more common taped & jointed plasterboard you'll find in other new homes.
The high specification kitchens & bathrooms have been designed in Somerset by Mayflower. Kitchens include a range of contemporary floor and wall units with integrated appliances and have been finished with Silestone or granite work surfaces. Bathrooms, en-suites, cloakrooms & utility rooms have tiles from Porcelanosa and are furnished with Duravit white sanitary ware and Hansgrohe chrome fittings.
All new build properties have been designed to exceed the National Building Regulations, with photovoltaic panels on the roof to generate electricity and triple glazing to reduce heat loss.
