Principle Manor House Refurbishment - Isfield
Full restoration and refurbishment of a Grade 2* listed manor house
The project involved the full restoration and refurbishment of a Grade 2* listed manor house of significant historical standing. A complex scenario involving a specialist team of designers working alongside local planners, listed buildings officers, English Heritage, conservation Architects, Ecology consultants and Archeologists. The property has Tudor elements along with Victorian additions, stable courtyards and out buildings.
The refurbishment involved the removal of all existing services throughout the building to allow an entirely new electrical installation, heating, domestic services whilst future proofing the property with data cable installations providing wi-fi, TV and telephone signals throughout the house. Some remodeling of the internal layout to create an 8 bedroom and 8 bathroom property plus refurbishment of drawing room, dining room, snug, study, billiard room and kitchen space.
In close association with the client, the design team and listed buildings officers Hawk undertook the refurbishment ensuring close attention to the existing features, protection of the historic fabric and reinstatement of traditional finishes including natural lime plaster, clay paints and solid oak joinery elements.
Out buildings, potting sheds and the Oast House cart bays were repurposed to provide modern and high tec plant rooms providing the heating and stored water services. A fantastic outcome and a hugely respectful refurbishment of this lovely property.
