Previously a barn and outbuildings; marketing proved unsuccessful as unable to let at an economic rent. Planning permission achieved to develop as residential courtyard development of houses. Sold with benefit of planning permission to a developer.

A residential development of five houses in the centre of this popular South Oxfordshire village. Dorchester’s history dates back to Roman times, meaning there were very stringent archaeological constraints on the scheme. The Roman Northgate is thought to have been in the area of the development, although its precise location is unknown. The need to avoid disturbance to the archaeological remains of the Roman and medieval settlement placed tight restrictions on the depth of below ground works, while the location in the conservation area and adjacent to numerous listed buildings strictly limited the height of the buildings. Extremely careful construction detailing and planning negotiations were required to ensure that well-proportioned accommodation was created within these parameters.

Extensive pre and post planning negotiation on foundation design with South Oxfordshire District Council Conservation and English Heritage as the development was over the site of a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
