We are particularly proud of the renovation and refurbishment work we carried out on this wonderful character property in the village of Blaxhall, near the Suffolk Coast. The property owner had engaged Framlingham-based chartered surveyors Clarke & Simpson who recommended us for the project.

Preserving original features

Work included installing a new bathroom, renovating the guest room and making good all surfaces throughout the house. As the property is a listed building, we were careful to ensure we preserved the original features. In particular, there are a number of beautiful period fireplaces that we cleaned up and repaired, so they now stand as attractive features.

Signature skylight

When we first encountered the signature skylight it was in need of a total refurbishment. Our team removed it and brought it back to our workshop where we repaired the wood and had new glass put in. The result is a stunning feature that many visitors have commented on. Working to the client’s specifications, we painted the property both inside and out, and also constructed a cart lodge in the grounds, which is used as a shelter for cars.

On-going maintenance

As with many of the properties we work on, we carry out on-going maintenance work on the old rectory, as and when requested. We are due to return this summer to refresh the paintwork on the exterior.
