Starting in early 2015, the work to turn a run down, tired country house into a modern, lavish manor had begun. Listed building status and various environmental conditions meant this was a project that required careful liaison between all authorities to ensure ecological habitats in the area were not disturbed.
Restoring the buildings structural integrity was the first and most important task we needed to take care of. After striping and replacing the traditional timber roof, a mixture of new and reclaimed Cotswold roof slates were fitted to the various roofs on the house.
A modern new central heating system was installed to ensure the property was brought into the 21st Century. As well as all new handmade external joinery including the extensive timber sash windows built in the traditional way seen on the front of the property.
A complete internal refurbishment was completed with new timber floors and internal doors, bathrooms, bedrooms and dressing rooms. An extensive new orangery was built to maximise the views of the local countryside.
