Josh and Nathalie Cherry battled for years to build a timber frame house in the style of a contemporary, cedar-clad barn in their garden.
When the couple bought an old cottage in need of renovation, it came with lapsed planning permission to build another house in the garden, but a covenant resulted in a long and unexpected battle.
“We intended from the start to reinstate the planning and build in the walled garden, but this was put on hold once we discovered the existence of the covenant,” explains Nathalie.
“It actually took over three years before everything was resolved, during which time we refurbished the cottage and moved in.”
