"Preserving History: An 18th Century Farmhouse in Nun Monkton"

Planning Application & Listed Building Consent

We have recently submitted a planning application and listed building consent for this beautiful farmhouse in the picturesque village of Nun Monkton, Harrogate.

The grade II listed farmhouse is in poor condition and in dire need of a complete renovation top to bottom to conserve the heritage asset. Our client wishes to sensitively restore the property add a sympathetic extension and to make it a comfortable dwelling suitable for modern living.

The site is located in the historic village of Nun Monkton which features a picturesque green fronted by traditional red brick two storey houses. The green is one of the last working Greens in Yorkshire and has had a Maypole for over 200 years.

A photographic record was made prior to any work been carried out to help clarify the structure’s history and assess any element of significance of the heritage asset.


A sympathetically designed garage has been proposed to replace the derelict utility and coal store. An oak framed porch extension is proposed to the south side of the annex to provide a practical and covered entry point to the new living areas. Constructed out of quality materials such as kiln- dried oak and reclaimed rosemary tiles the porch will enhance the appearance of the property.
