Old Schoolhouse


This 17th century Grade II listed property had endured many alterations over the years. A vast extension was built in the early twentieth century, when it was converted to a boarding school. The brief was to convert the institutional property into a stylish home, restoring and making dramatic use of the 17th century fabric.

The original hall structure had been cut in half by a new floor, creating a low entrance hall. WBF removed the first floor to restore the drama of the original space, displaying fine carved trusses, wind braces and a carved oak pulpit staircase. Adjacent to the hall, the old institutional corridor and washrooms were opened up to form a fine panelled dining room with a new oak staircase.
