Little Brickhill contains a number of historic buildings and spaces that in combination create a distinctive environment. The site comprises of the imposing Jacobean style house and ancillary building located at the back of the site. The main house is grade II listed and is thought to have origins in the late 17th century. The stables are not visible from public space and although they are not listed, but they are important to understanding the history and development of the village. As a whole the farmhouse and remaining complex make a unique and significant contribution to the conservation area.

This structure, whilst usable, was in need of general maintenance works and upgrades and is, visually, of poor quality. Footage of stables will remains as originally built and after a complete refurbishment with thermal performance upgrade, the floor area will be used as accessible living space for elderly person, who in need of assistance. The proposal will provide living accommodation, kitchen/living room, two bedrooms, one with en-suite, and a fully accessible bathroom. The design philosophy will fully respect their original character and newly introduces elements will reflect their heritage.
