As designated heritage asset, all works were closely scrutinised by West Berkshire Council as the local planning authority.
The refurbishment of the main house entailed restoring the house through precise reconstruction and sensitive contemporary detailing and interpretations of Georgian design.
This included reinstating the historic main entrance, which restores the original architectural hierarchy of the building while the reconfigured driveway access further creates a sense of arrival. The window bays were demolished, redesigned and reconstructed with timber sash windows (glazed with crown glass to match original glazing) and Flemish bond brickwork.
Rooms were restored to their original proportions, the floor was raised to provide level access throughout and a new kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom accommodation added.
