Project Gallery

Since 2001, the team has been instrumental in securing a future, through the implementation of innovative redevelopment ideas, for the following historic buildings.

Current Projects

 

Axwell Park, Blaydon on Tyne

Once considered by English Heritage to be the most important historic building at risk in north east England, the future of Axwell Park is secured. The magnificent Axwell Hall, previously abandoned for more than 20 years, is undergoing restoration to provide 20 truly individual and luxurious apartments. Award-winning new houses have been created in the walled garden and work has started on the recreation of the coachhouse and stable yard to provide 27 new homes. All of this is set within 35 acres of historic parkland, now restored as a private amenity for residents of the Park.

Arthurstone House, by Meigle, Perthshire

Having completed the restoration and conversion of this very fine Grade B listed house in 2005, the Company is now returning to Arthurstone with proposals for a small, bespoke development of detached four bedroomed homes built in traditional style and materials and each set in extensive grounds. These will be available to the market in 2015.

 

Completed Projects

 

Holme Eden, Carlisle

Holme Eden, Warwick on Eden, near Carlisle. A former abbey, this uniquely designed ‘calendar house’ is a fine example of John Dobson’s work in the High Victorian Gothic style and fully deserving of its Grade II* status. Facing an uncertain future of disuse and disrepair, it has been redeveloped to create 12 sumptuous apartments within the fully restored mansion and 15 new cottages within the historic walled garden.

 

Eshton Hall, Gargrave, nr Skipton

Certainly one of North Yorkshire’s finest country houses, the sublime Grade II* Eshton Hall occupies an historic parkland setting and commands extensive views over the surrounding countryside. Following closure as a nursing home, the Hall was redeveloped to provide 18 apartments whilst conserving the special quality of the late Regency period architecture.

 

Walford Manor, nr Shrewsbury

This magnificent manor house is situated close to Shrewsbury in the small rural hamlet of Walford Heath. Unsuited to its use as commercial office space, a conversion to residential use has secured its future as a private home

 

Ladstock Hall, Keswick, Cumbria

Ladstock Hall occupies an elevated position in the heart of the English Lake District, enjoying panoramic views over Bassenthwaite Lake to the Skiddaw massif. Formerly used as a hotel, this grade II listed building received planning permission for an imaginative conversion to two houses, four cottages and four apartments set in extensive grounds.

 

Arthurstone House, by Meigle, Perthshire

Arthurstone House is located in the beautiful Vale of Strathmore in Perthshire, where is to be found some of the most fertile land in Scotland. Situated in grounds of almost 40 acres, this former private School was converted to create 8 apartments and 7 cottages in a truly idyllic setting.

 

West Lindeth, Silverdale, Lancs

Most recently used as a nursing home but neglected for many years, this Georgian gentleman’s residence has now been completely restored to its original use. The former coach house and garden house have also been renovated to provide lovely village homes.
