Farmhouse, Cranleigh

This project comprised the refurbishment of a large country house, set in 55 acres, to provide a substantial home with five en-suite bedrooms.  The existing layout was remodelled including demolition of parts of the main house and two new double-storey extensions.

Internally, the high specification finishes were selected to be sympathetic to the age of the property, but designed to meet modern standards.  New M&E services were installed, together with a bio-disk treatment plant.

Externally, the roofs and hanging tile areas were relined and replaced with handmade clay tiles, with all roofing works carried out under licence with Natural England.  The chimney stacks were rebuilt and relined to bring the existing fireplaces back into use.

Phase two works involved the demolition of the Grade II listed two-storey barn to provide annexed dwellings for the guest suites, and the ‘Heritage’ double garage now incorporates a plant room for the bio-mass boiler and associated fuel storage.

The existing listed barn was supported, lifted and new foundations cast, ensuring the building could be provided with a full damp proof membrane and adequate structural support for conversion to an office and further guest accommodation.  An extension was constructed to provide a one bedroom flat, connected to the main house, along with a four-space garage, four-space car port and associated landscaping.
