The thatch sits well on top of walls built in the local Ham stone, which
is quarried on Ham Hill, overlooking the village of Stoke Sub Hamdon.
The concept for the development design was carried out by the Architect
to the Duchy of Cornwall, William Bertram who was adamant that we use
the local Ham stone.
joint development with the Duchy of Cornwall at Stoke Sub Hamdon is looking
a treat with the thatched cottage Plot 1 being admired by both the locals
and potential purchaser visitors. We have regular monthly meetings on
Location with William Bertram and Tim Grey from the Duchy, and at last
months meeting William was for some reason showing particular interest
on the building stage of a terrace of three dwellings.
With hard hats and a clip board, notes were accumulating at a rate of
knots. Such as 'Where's the boundary for this plot'? 'Does that large
Walnut tree fall within the boundary of the plot'? 'Are the kitchen specifications
as per the show house'? 'What finish did we agree on for the external
doors'? etc,etc. Eventually I asked William why was he showing particular
interest in plots 12, 13 and 14 his reply was 'Because I intend to buy
them, as a letting investment'. And so he did. As you would imagine all
who had input, especially the Location staff were extremely pleased with
the notion that we must be getting it right if the architect buys three.
