Hellesveor Farm is a historic farmstead in the small hamlet of Hellesveor, just a few hundred metres west of St Ives and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Adapted with the aim of being a highly sustainable family business.

Sensitively refurbished

The converted farmhouse looks in place with the neighbouring dwellings. Retaining the original roof structure carefully considers the farmhouse’s relationship with the rest of the farm (and holiday business).

Design Features:

  • Original roof structure retained
  • Timber wrapping blends in

High quality details

Making the most of the unique interior, a glazed opening was installed in the living room, that itself leads onto the verandah and garden. The living space is bright and makes the most of natural light with south-facing rooflights.

  • High-spec details
  • Bright living space
  • Quirky installments

Sustainable Features

Not only is the building exemplary in terms of practicality and consciousness, but it is highly efficient. Once poor quality, cement-washed stone is now blanket wrapped in timber frame and super insulated. Some other features follow.

  • Granite walls act as a ‘thermal battery’
  • Triple glazed windows
  • Insulated roof against winds
  • Very energy efficient
