Restoration & Extension to a Grade II Listed House
A substantial Grade II Listed 16th Century house with later additions, in a picturesque semi-rural location, was partly destroyed by fire. Where possible the original house has been restored but some parts had to be demolished and have been replaced. A 16th Century hall house and a 17th Century northern wing were restored and reinstated, with enhanced energy efficiency measures included. A late 20th Century wing and a later double-storey wing to the south had to be demolished and were replaced with a new wing and a conservatory that are visually more sympathetic in size, height and massing with the older part of the house. The new southern wing respects the tradition of the original house in design and materials, with a traditional lime render and a stone slate roof. The ashlar quoins on the older part of the house have been replicated on the new wing to maintain the overall character of the building.
