The Old Watermill, Falfield

This Grade II listed 18th Century corn mill is steeped in history. The mill was initially converted to a residential home by the present owners in 1998. The original iron water wheel and the grinding mechanisms were retained tastefully behind a glass screen.


Having lived in the house for several years, our client wanted more light. The original building’s windows were small and few, reflecting its agricultural past.


We proposed to extend the existing building, relocating the kitchen to the ground floor with a utility/ boot room and WC, easily accessible from the parking area. Also, on the first floor, adding a bright, light reception room.


Successfully achieving planning and listed building consent, our design was subservient to the original building and did not exceed its ridge height, therefore, met with approval from all concerned.


Our design used a timber oak superstructure, cedar cladding and glass. On both floors, doors open onto the newly landscaped garden, making it a fabulous place for watching the changing seasons or entertaining.
