The needs and requirements of the 21st century family are quite different to those of 500 or even 50 years ago. Park Farm, a large 16th century Herefordshire farmhouse, is almost 500 years old and has been continuously occupied since it was constructed. The spectacular renovation of the property benefits from many new technology features - modern insulation, damp-proofing, central heating, plumbing and wiring, but uses traditional materials, oak, lime-plaster, brick and slate to maintain the architectural integrity of the building. The result is a contemporary 21st century home and a building restored to survive another 500 years of family life.
