Spring Gardens involved a program of conservation and refurbishment of this stone built village house.


The work included re-roofing in natural slate, replacing pvc plastic gutters with cast metal ones of an appropriate pattern, re-pointing using lime mortar, restoring the windows and replacing the 1950’s front door with a 6 panel flush-beaded door to a pattern found on nearby listed cottages. Internally the house is a fortunate survival with original screen walls doors and stair intact these are all being carefully repaired and redecorated using traditionally formulated paint.


The second part of the work involved minor alterations and extension to the existing single storey element of the house. The extension is a minor infill allowing for the existing bathroom to be reconfigured and for the creation of a small lobby.


This project demonstrates commitment to the careful restoration of this small Georgian cottage and reinforces a high quality townscape that is more than worthy of its Conservation Area designation.
