Grade II Listed Stable Block Restoration & Refurbishment

This extensive restoration, reconstruction and conversion of a Grade II Listed stable block – located on a much wider estate with main manor house and extensive landscaped grounds, close to the borders between Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire – resulted in a stunning recreational space, complete with bar, lounge area, home cinema, games, and art rooms.

Retaining the original forms and fabric of the building – in particular, conserving the historic clock tower – was key to preserving the integrity and distinctive character of the stables. Improving the building's envelope – both in structure and environmental performance – were integral to the works, and the use of the highest quality materials and craftsmen essential throughout.

Three large interconnected and light-filled rooms at ground floor – including bespoke stabled seating areas, snug and art studio – and new kitchen, shower room and lounge / sleeping area at first, showcase clean modern detailing, complementary to the heritage qualities of the property, yet reflective of their contemporary use.

Throughout, exposed stonework and timber trusses unite rural architecture with accents of contemporary design and detailing – woven together with steel frame Crittall-style glazing by Cotswold Casements and bespoke metalwork and joinery by FR Fletcher & Sons Ltd and D Smith Joinery, respectively. This meeting of styles follows through with eclectic interior styling, working alongside Sarah Delaney Design.
