We were commissioned to restore and refurbish this Grade II listed former rectory in Suffolk.
The core of the house is seventeenth century, with an early nineteenth century ‘gentrified’ brick re-fronting to the principal elevation. Located to the rear is a late nineteenth century drawing room addition of ambitious scale and bold material use. We are proposing to demolish an area of dilapidated lean-to additions situated to the rear corner of the house, and replace these with a two storey kitchen and bathroom wing. The provision of such rooms removes the need for the existing, historically interesting, and untouched spaces to be altered or subdivided. The rest of the house will be sensitively and gently opened up, repaired, modernised and restored.
Planning and Listed Building Consent have been granted, and work has recently commenced on site.
