The Farmhouse, Prestbury
We were commissioned to manage the renovation and refurbishment of this Grade II listed property in Prestbury, Cheltenham. This charming property was in a state of disrepair although habitable.
Our brief was to bring the property into the 21st century but of course to retain all of the period features. We began with a total inspection of the structural fabric of the property.
Decades of neglect resulted in a need to carry out major sympathetic renewals, including new bespoke hardwood windows throughout the property.
One particular instruction was to replicate the moulding on the top of the chimney stack, part of which had fallen away.
TRADITIONAL MATERIALS & METHODS
It takes careful planning to manage any works to a listed building, especially a 400 year old timber framed farmhouse, and permissions have to be sought first from Heritage and Conservation.
To preserve the original building, traditional materials and methods were applied to this challenging renovation.
The end result was worth the meticulous planning and attention to detail that went into this renovation project. With careful future maintenance the longevity of this property is now assured.
