Vernacular Farmhouse, Oristown

This plain vernacular farmhouse was refurbished and substantially enlarged to provide additional bedroom, bathroom and reception rooms. The new extensions are disposed to the rear of the old house creating a new entrance front with matching wings. The design draws on early-nineteenth-century Grecian classicism. The old house was extensively refurbished using natural materials more compatible with the traditional construction performance together with some modest alterations including a new Tuscan doorcase and replacement of poor-quality modern windows, doors and joinery with new traditional designs.
