17th Century Grange Renovation

Stonemasonry / Joinery

We recently undertook the extension and renovation of a 17thC Grade II* listed building in North Shropshire.

The kitchen extension is constructed with a cantilevered corner and sliding doors that when opened into the newly created courtyard garden, brings the two spaces together.

Internally the kitchen is a clear span with high pitched ceilings creating a great feeling of space and a glazed oak gable flooding the space with light.
The large ashlar stonework blocks for the extension were reclaimed from the site and any additional stone was hand dressed to blend in and brushed back to give an aged and weathered appearance.

The extensive landscaping included raising the existing ground levels to create a flush finish with the kitchen extension. The raised flower beds are constructed with hand dressed stone from the local quarry and include an external fire place as the focal point of the entertaining area.

The internal alterations mainly comprised of reinstating the former grand hall to its former glory, having been partitioned into smaller rooms during the Victorian era. The new focal point of the grand hall is large stone fire place again created from the local stone, proportionate to the generously high ceilings.

The interior design, furnishings and soft landscaping were all carried out by the client and really finished the project off in style.
