Kingsham Farm is set in an outstanding and beautiful position in the south of England. Amidst pastureland at the southern end of the ‘Milland Basin’ in the South Downs National Park, it is located within, what was, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and now part of the South Downs National Park, where the potential for development is extremely limited. The existing 1960s house was considered unprepossessing and unworthy of its location. Permission was granted for its demolition and replacement with a dwelling more fitting for its environment and, moved slightly to the south-east, the property now sits more comfortably within its setting. Working closely with the architect Quinlan Terry, Kingsham Farm is now more sympathetic to its surroundings, blending well into the site and wooded backdrop. The use of local materials, Wealden Sussex sandstone and slate roof tiles, ensures it enhances the integration of the site into the surrounding landscape.
