Grade II Listed Manor House 

This charming 18th century manor house in Cheddar, Somerset (Grade II Listed) has had various alterations over time, and this project involved careful consideration and consultation with Sedgemoor Conservation department to produce a scheme that carefully integrated new alterations and removed harmful ones.

 

Balancing Heritage with Sustainability played a key part in this architectural project and in accordance with local planning policy EN23 and good conservation practice, alterations to the heritage building were designed to avoid the loss of historic form and features of special interest.

 

The proposals included the removal of an existing modern conservatory, internal alterations to the floor plan, proposed new joinery details, fabric conservation repairs, insertion of a wider set of doors and Crittall style screen and replacement of the single glazed Crittall windows with thermally efficient powder coated new ones. Sustainable & renewable heating systems have also been carefully considered.
