LISTED HOUSE NEAR BOX

CONSERVATION & EXTENSIONS

WILTSHIRE

This recently completed project features an extension and new roof, as well as conservation and refurbishment works to an early eighteenth century grade II listed farmhouse. The building is situated in a small hamlet near Box, Wiltshire, just on the edge of the Cotswolds, and only a few miles from Bath.

Our proposal entailed removing a thermally poor rear conservatory and replacing it with a garden room that can be used all the year round.  The new extension is constructed in an oak frame and features a lead roof with a glazed lantern.

The pitched roof of an existing rear extension had been cruelly replaced in the mid-twentieth century. We reinstated the gable including stone mullioned windows and added a pitched roof supported on oak purlins and covered in Cotswold stone tiles.

Other works included new oak doors, refurbishment of Bath stone fireplaces and a bread oven, new floors and traditional lime plastering.
