A generally well executed converion of a group of agricultural buildings, random rubble with brick dressings andslate roofs. Dark stained timber is said to be more durable and maintenance free than the more traditional use of white paint, but often looks visually incongruous. Other details: Maps, photograph.

Google, 2011, Google Streetview (Website). SDV346146.

Most of the buildings have dark stained timber, except for one house which has white painted door and windows.
