Completed Rooms (Phase 1)

Now, mid-way through the period property restoration programme we have completed the Antique Sales Room - The Morning RoomMorning Room and Library showrooms which now display a fascinating collection of Antique furniture, silver and unusual objects in a beautiful period environment. The Ballroom has also been recreated to reflect its former Georgian elegance, and the each of the principal workshop areas is now complete.

The Morning Room, which lost its Fireplace and sash Bay window have now been replaced. With fragments of the fireplace found in the grounds together with Edwardian photographs, we have pieced together the probable original design. Period Propert Restoration - The Morning RoomThe sash window has been copied from an existing original window and will incorporate a panelled window seat.

The Library Showroom had evidence of floor to ceiling panelling which has now been reinstated with English Oak, incorporating the Regency style oak doors and fireplace.

The original utility area has been sympathetically converted into the Cabinet Makers, Period Property Restoration Colour Blending The Morning Room DoorFrench Polishers and Upholsterer's workshops - all benefit from viewing windows allowing guests to see the craftsmen hard at work creating beautiful pieces or conserving original items – helping to dispel the secrecy and myths surrounding conservation and restoration.

The Ballroom with elegant proportions and impressive quartet alcove is now host to many varied and interesting talks, lectures and workshops on Antiques and allied restoration trades.
