Conversion and Reconfiguration of Grade I Listed Property
Conversion and Reconfiguration of Grade I Listed Property, Gloucestershire
The new owners of this detached Grade I listed property, situated in a peaceful Gloucestershire village, wanted us to create a more comfortable living environment for their retirement years.
Being a Grade I listed property, we were careful to propose sympathetic updates to remain in keeping with the historic character of the original building, which dates from over 300 years ago.
To the rear of the existing property there is currently a dilapidated lean-to, and our primary proposal is a sympathetic conversion which will involve removing the current lean-to and replacing it with a porch and entrance area. Two conservation roof lights will replace the one current roof light in the lean-to, allowing increased natural light to enter the staircase and entrance area. An existing interior door will be removed and replaced with an external door to gain direct access to the patio area and rear garden directly from the kitchen.
Since the existing structure is constructed in natural stone with rubble-filled walls, which bear testament to the property's age, the new conversion will be created using similar natural stone to enable a seamless flow.
Upstairs an internal reconfiguration will create a new larger family bathroom and allow the addition of an ensuite to the master bedroom.
Modifying listed buildings is a sensitive process which demands many additional considerations, and we look forward to updating you soon on our progress.
