Low Fold, Troutbeck, Lake District: a traditional building renovation project
To renovate a traditional Lake District building, which was last updated in the 1960s, and to convert the attached granary building into a holiday home suitable for the luxury market.
Team on site:
This project was fully project and site managed by our team and all of our trades were co ordinated over a three year period to transform the site into a holiday home that made the most of the stunning views and surrounding landscape. Trades included general builders, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, stone masons and joiners.
Work carried out:
With traditional buildings it is vital to retain as many original character and period features as possible. We diligently stripped back cosmetic additions from the last 50 years and uncovered oak panelling and original slate and oak flooring, as well exposing beams, returning interior doors to their former glory, and offering much need tlc to the amazing stonework that is so characteristic of this area.
We then refurbished the whole property, introducing a carefully planned balance between old and new. This phase included underfloor heating, a full kitchen fit, new bathroom suites, and interior design for the lounge.
The whole is now an easily maintained luxury holiday home with views to die for.
