restoration drama

A controversial proposal (not by this office) to demolish this late 18th century timber framed building was refused by SCDC in 2016. A revised approach to the builder by the owners means that we are now finalising the details of our scheme which proposes the sensitive conversion of the derelict structure into two small cottages (which our research for the Heritage Appraisal showed the building had been during the 19th century). 

Pre-application comments received from the Local Authority have been extremely encouraging and we hope that the future of this rare and understated structure now looks brighter than it has been for several decades.
