The Old House is a Grade II listed property with a grand pilastered 18th century front façade in brick and a more vernacular and quirky rear elevation in flint. As is often the case opening up of the fabric revealed long standing damp and structural problems and much of the property was reroofed using reclaimed tiles. New elements were also introduced and notably an internal courtyard was glazed over to create a conservatory style outside space. Much neglected, the renovated building reflects the current owner’s affection for a house that is now an inspirational family home that embodies unique historical character and contemporary styling.
