Project Description

This wonderful project involved the construction of a new build Manor House of circa 10,500 sq. ft. spread over three floors, on a sloping site.

The house was constructed using locally sourced rubble stone walling, accentuated with ashlar dressings and bronze windows.  Internally, extensive panelling and intricate plasterwork was used to walls and ceilings, along with locally sourced stone flooring.  Whilst the specification was very high, the client was keen to review and consider cost options on many of the internal elements of the project – and we therefore successfully cost-managed this project through to completion, whereby the initial contract sum and final account remained the same.

The project included the new build dwelling, along with extensive hard and soft landscaping and the renovation of an ancient pond.
