The Manor House

This Grade 2 listed Georgian Manor House was taken from a tired and neglected state, (it was last refurbished in the 1970’s) to a beautifully restored home with careful preservation of original features and a faithful replacement of those features removed in the the past.

Hidden paneling and window seats were discovered beneath modern plasterboard, fire places were totally remodelled from Ancaster stone, and coving was handmade using moulds taken from the some small remaining original pieces. This level of detail embellished what was really a new house within an old structure, with new heating, plumbing, wiring and replastered throughout.

The ugly flat roofed garage was demolished and farm buildings were separately purchased to create a cart lodge for parking and vast outbuildings with potential for many uses. The garden was doubled in size and this created the sweeping driveway such a property deserves.
