Sustainability focussed transformation, preserves and revitalises impeccably elegant Grade II listed residence

Despite its initial allure, this property lacked functionality for a modern family. A meticulous refurbishment was undertaken, encompassing a new roof, a kitchen extension, and the transformation of an old stable block into guest accommodation.

Absolute’s careful and sympathetic intervention aimed at achieving full sustainability home while preserving the property’s inherent charm. The goal was not to make a bold statement with the extensions but to introduce thoughtful changes that enhance the overall living experience.

The addition of a new kitchen block, including a much-needed boot room, exemplifies this practical approach. Internally, every detail, from electrics to heating and bathrooms, underwent upgrades. The result is a revitalised family home that breathes new life into its historic legacy, ensuring the preservation of its heritage for future generations.

Location: West Berkshire 

Friends on the project: Blue Tongue Construntion

We love: Preserving this stunning home for future generations to come and achieving this in a sustainable way. 

Sustainability/Eco elements: A complete refurbishment including a new heating system, electrical services, solar pv and battery installation. The external cart shed was also converted into a beautiful contemporary annex space offering guest accommodation. The entire roof was removed, insulated, new coverings installed, and chimney breasts rebuilt. All the works resulted in a luxurious and comfortable home, finished to a superb standard.
