Little Pickthall, Broughton Mills

A remote Lakeland farmhouse, high on the fellside was in need of significant modernisation and repair before it could be occupied by its new owners. Retaining the character and charm of the cottage was essential to the design brief so intervention was kept to an absolute minimal and JCA took time to understand the history and feel of the existing building before setting about the work to refurbish the property.

The external cement render was removed and the client decided they did not want it replaced so the walls were re-pointed.

The rear elevation with all new windows and doors.

The character of the remote farmhouse was retained following the refurbishment works.

The charm of the internal spaces was maintained.

A new farmhouse kitchen was created.

Modern design such as this simple staircase was introduced to the backdrop of the old cottage.
