Asher House

Cuxham, Oxfordshire

The top-to-toe renovation and refit of this traditional stone and brick Oxfordshire country home.

Situated on the fringe of a picturesque Oxfordshire village, Asher House is typical of the local stone-built properties that characterise the area, with original beams and impressive hearths. Working in conjunction with HollandGreen Architecture and Lara Clarke Interiors, innovative design and a collaborative extended team approach were the key to this complete transformation.

From playroom to pavilion, every inch of the house and garden was considered. The works involved stripping back more recent additions to the cottage, exposing and showcasing its original character and establishing a lighter-feeling interior that had a better flow and a more direct connection with the outdoor space. A complete aperture refit of traditional casement windows and French doors, as well as extensive made to measure cabinetry throughout, was by Barr Joinery. In addition, a traditional shaker kitchen with inset tongue and groove end panels and internals was manufactured and fit by Barr Kitchens.

“It was a pleasure working with Barr Group. They have the same attention to detail that we strive for in our projects, with really high quality end results. We hope to work with them again soon.”
Lara Clarke, Project Designer


Landscaping works are a fundamental part of every build. It was a pleasure to work with our design collaborators to see this project through to the very end; pool, pavilion, terracing and glazed field-side included!

Made to Measure

Every room in the house was the recipient of made to measure cabinetry from the Barr Joinery and Barr Kitchens workshops. Each of Lara’s considered and innovative designs translated back at the Field Farm studio into manufacturing drawings ready to be brought to life.
