One of the oldest houses in a sought-after Surrey village, this Grade II property dates back well over 400 years and is classified as a building of special interest. Rostrum Building's challenge was to extend the building and outbuildings to provide a spacious, practical family home whilst remaining true to the building with no compromises to the design features of the original Hall.

Re-claimed local bargate stone with ironstone galleting and lime mortar joints blended the new walls into the existing seamlessly and crucially allowed the existing building to breathe. To preserve the integrity of the property, many handmade features were incorporated by Rostrum Building including green oak roof trusses, a feature curved staircase and a handmade kitchen with a four-oven Aga.

In addition to the main build, Rostrum Building completed hard landscaping, driveway and entrance alterations and worked alongside the swimming pool contractor, ensuring a seamless transition to completion.

"Although we had a reasonably detailed set of plans for our house, working in a listed building seems to be a somewhat unknown quantity, and Rostrum were invaluable in helping us with the design and fine detail. We had the feeling that they were treating it with the same care as if it were their own house, and certainly much thought was put into the project offsite and in their own time."
