Revesby Abbey in Lincolnshire, is a Grade I listed country house designed by the Scottish architect William Burn.
Built in 1844 and abandoned during the 1960's, the house has regularly featured on the English Heritage ‘Buildings At Risk Register’. Revesby was purchased at auction by a couple who are restoring the house, gardens and stable block as their family home.
We were engaged to liaise with the local authority and English Heritage, and to prepare the necessary drawings and details to obtain consent for emergency repairs and conversion of the stable block to form living accommodation.
Once consent was granted, the owner (a master craftsman) repaired roofs and reinstated floors and staircases within the main house. The stable block and brewhouse have been sensitively re-roofed and the gardens have been cleared to reveal the original layout and landscaping features.
