New Cottage Orné house, Hampshire
A new house in the Cottage Orné or Regency Gothick tradition, replaced a small, Victorian farmhouse on the site. The Cottage Orné style, seen in the local area, allows for a form that is both symmetrical and informal, reducing the perceived mass of the house. This is reinforced by the modest scale, varied eaves and ridge heights and the location of first floor rooms partially within the roof, lit via gabled dormer windows. The Gothick character continues in the arched headed timber sash windows, carved decorative bargeboards, projecting eaves details under the roofline and the form of the entrance porch and ground floor bay windows.
