Bushfurlong Farm

Bushfurlong Farm is a little way out of Isle Brewers, a small village in Somerset that takes its name partly from the River Isle and partly from the Brewer family who held the manor from the time of Henry II.

David Brain Partnership was commissioned to transform the former Duchy of Cornwall property from shared accommodation into a modern home. Bushfurlong Farm is Grade II Listed and our own commissioned historical research suggests that the original building was a 'through passage' hall of raised cruck construction, thatched with cob walls and a gallery acting as a farm shelter on the north side which now forms the new Entrance Passage.

The Farmhouse has been subject to further modifications over the years in line with fashion. Many of the original features have been retained and restored within the scheme including the original inglenook, bread oven and the old well. The restoration has also removed some of the more unfortunate features added over the years.

The completed project affords the client all the facilities of modern living within a house set in the countryside, that had suffered serious neglect and would otherwise have continued to deteriorate.
