D4 Listed House 

Returning a House from Mixed Office – Dwelling use to as a Single House, for Rental. Conservation Repairs, Roof insulation, Renovations, Replanning & Redecoration.

As part of this project internal subdivision of the ground floor to suit office use was removed so that the main reception rooms once again became part of the house.  A modern kitchen replaced a dark utility space off the courtyard which although small to encourage it’s use, small changes like lowering and widening the window & replacing the door were made to improve the connection with the outsdoors and make the room brighter.  Upstairs accomodation to the front is now made up of a large double bedroom and en-suite with walk-in wardrobe. Overall the house has three bedrooms, two of which are en-suite and the top landing contains a bedroom and bathroom.

Much of the work carried out was practical – the front parapet required careful repairs following damaged caused by snow melt and other careful steps to make and improve flashing repairs to prevent a reoccurance of similar issues.  The roof was insulated, a new boiler and hot water cylinder fitted.  The project included full internal decoration of the project and front of house.  Non-original windows were replaced in places. 

Materials were carefully selected to suit the character of the property, a protected structure while being mindful that this is a rental property rather than one for an owner occupier.

We provided a full architectural service on this project which included a successful planning application.  

The completed project is a bright, comfortable, lovely home in good condition and importantly for the client easy to rent.
