The site is within a Conservation Area located in a clearing in the New Forest. The simple outbuilding is a sensitive addition to the original vernacular Victorian Cottage. Clad in timber it functions both as garage and home office using traditional materials to blend with and become an inconspicuous addition to the property. The rear of the building is raised on a brick plinth in response to the potential for the nearby stream to flood.
