Grade II listed Wiltshire house

Although the origins of this grade II listed property date back to the seventeenth century, it endured many alterations over the years.  A vast extension was built in the early twentieth century when it was converted into a boarding school.

Our brief was to create a wonderful, stylish home out of this institutional building, restoring and making dramatic use of the historic seventeenth century fabric.

The original seventeenth century hall structure had been floored over, creating a low ceilinged entrance hall and games room above.  We completely removed this floor structure and returned the hall to its original drama, with fine carved trusses, wind braces and a curved, carved oak pulpit staircase.  Adjacent to this, the old institutional corridor and washrooms were opened up to form a fine panelled dining room with a new oak staircase.
