Restoration – 150 year old listed cottage in North End

150 year old listed cottage
The cottage is situated in the grounds of a larger property and had fallen into a state of disrepair over many years.  It is understood that the building was constructed as a village meeting place around 150 years ago.  The current owners, therefore,  decided to have the cottage restored with a strong remit to retain as much of the original building’s character as possible.

The cottage was completely stripped back to the bare structure and many of the original oak beams were replaced.  The remaining beams were treated and restored.  The floor was completely removed and replaced with a solid oak floor, the windows and doors are all solid oak and were hand made by our joiner in his local workshop.

A new bathroom was installed with a travertine floor and wall tiling to make it self-contained and habitable.  Internal and external walls and beams were decorated after plastering and rendering.

Working alongside the local Building Control and Listed Buildings departments the cottage was restored to be sympathetic with the surrounding properties within the North End village.

Ashley completed the works exactly how we hoped and was very professional and accommodating (along with his team).  We will be using him again in the not to distant future when we extend our house.”  Sarah, North End
