Neo Georgian new build in Co Tyrone

Bronwen Clements and Gary McCausland turned their attention to the family farm after struggling to find a house to buy. 

We had tried to purchase a bungalow but it didn’t work out,” says Bronwen. “The properties we had been looking at suddenly shot up in price. That’s when we started investigating if we could build a house, and we were fortunate that my dad was happy for us to do so on the family farm.”
