Plans lodged with East Riding Council would see former outbuidlings at The Grange, Hotham, including a stable and a farm remodelled and turned into living space.

Plans stated the conversion, which would see a glass structure installed to link different parts of the building, would help safe guard the site’s heritage for future generations.

The application homeowner Jacob Dixon stated he wanted to transform the whole of the building into a long term family home after buying it in 2021.

It is set to see minor alterations made to the farmhouse and changes to the inside of the stables and granary.

Alterations to the farmhouse include in-filling the existing front door and bringing its original main entrance back into use.

Most of it will remain untouched because of its historic significance.

The farmhouse’s gig house, a cow house and barn all repaired and converted to live in.

The barn would feature a kitchen, dining room and living room.

A new internal link extension will be built across its central courtyard to connect the farmhouse, stables and granary to the cow house and barn.

It has been designed to keep the impact on the rest of the building to a minimum.

Two air source heat pumps are proposed and would be in the back garden, providing a source of renewable energy.

The farmhouse was built after a cottage previously on site was torn down in 1735.

The building was licensed to sell ale in the 1760s, suggesting that it served as the village pub.

The name The Grange was adopted in 1861 and the site functioned as a farm throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.

It had 170 acres of land being worked by 1921, according historic records.

The buildings were given Grade II-listed status in 1987.
