The Gate Keepers Lodge


Our team were tasked with producing a traditional 2 storey, 3-bedroom property for use on an existing Private Farm estate in the Lincolnshire countryside. The property would form part of the farms existing complex and would be occupied by employees of the site. The dwelling was positioned within the site to drastically improve overall security, siting it adjacent to the main approach into the farm.

The dwelling was appropriately designed for occupation for a large family. At ground floor, a large Lounge, Kitchen and Breakfast area, separate Dining Room and Study. At First, Master Bedroom with En-suite and walk-in wardrobe, Family Bathroom and two further Bedrooms. The property features a dormer design, allowing the overall height to remain low without drastically inflicting on the first-floor accommodation, but also to reduce the impact that the property would impose on its surrounding rural location.

As part of the scheme, vehicle access and parking, garden areas and landscaping was also established. This project underwent extensive 3D design work to produce the artist impressions seen on this page.

What our clients say...

The designs that SRA produced were outstanding. The layout works perfect and the specification is exactly what we were after! SRA oversaw the whole project through to completion and ensured the building was delivered as expected.

Residential Client

We have been working with Niell and his team at SRA in redesigning an existing planning passed house design. We have found them to be highly efficient, offering good choice of recommendations and proposals and very easy and pleasant to work with. The brief had to take place within a short period of time and the team were very accommodating with this, especially in difficult Covid times. I would highly recommend using SRA for future plans.

Jennifer, Residential Client

Niell provided me one of the most professional services I have received. The quality of service was outstanding, Niell answered the phone every time and answered any questions I had the same day whether by email or phone. The plot I was looking at was also of a beautiful design. I would confidently recommend anyone to use SRA Architecture.

Carl, Residential Client

SRA Architecture have made so much difference – we now have six parking/pull-in spaces with our own filter lane taking the school traffic away from the lane, leaving it free for the residents and through traffic including emergency vehicles.

Clare Dawson, School Business Manager

SRA have designed new houses and building alterations on a number of projects we have tendered for and worked on over the past 20 years or so. Their plans and specifications are consistently clear and thorough and the architectural work in the construction phase has been excellent. I have found them to be one of the leading practices we have worked with throughout this time.

Residential Client

It is wonderful to see such an excellent facility completed and for it to be able to offer education and childcare to our community.
