Hambutts House was an elegant Georgian house built of Cotswold stone, and situated on a quiet country lane on the outskirts of the village. (No. 1) Here Barron and Larcher created a comfortable home with a beautiful garden full of shrubs and plants many of which inspired Larcher's textile designs as well as her paintings. A stable block adjacent to the house was converted into a spacious workshop. Downstairs, a large indigo vat was sunk into the floor with tracking and pulleys installed overhead. These enabled the material to be lowered and raised in and out of the vat on star frames, without the need for handling the dripping indigo-dyed cloth.
