Restoration Projects was needed to carry out the refurbishment and restoration on this 13 bedroom, Grade II listed house. This magnificent house was founded on a 16th century monastery, and in the forthcoming centuries, extended to this beautiful property.We worked alongside Cheshire architect Emma Roden of Kimble Roden Associates to create a sympathetic but modern interior with traditional craftsmanship. Externally, a traditional oak-framed porch was hand-crafted on site by our carpenters Robin and Simon. Our master stonemason, Chris, who has 35 years’ experience, completed the stone work.The roof had suffered for years from poor repairs. We surveyed and repaired it by enlisting our in-house roofing team, who have 65 years’ experience between them in listed buildings and ecclesiastical roof repair and replacement.The internal work involved two modern bathroom suites, traditional hand-made joinery, the removal of the main structural walls on the ground floor to create an open plan kitchen, a utility room, morning room, library, and large lounge. We aided in the installation of AGA cooker, liaising with David Lisle to install a custom designer kitchen.
