Victorian MansionVictorian Mansion, Surrey  

We recently provided an architectural and historical appraisal of a High-Victorian mansion with listed Arts & Crafts outbuildings. This listed mansion has been empty for a decade and, working with a team of architects, we have been able to secure a sensitive, low-intensity conversion scheme that protects and retains the historic integrity of the building, while enabling it to have a secure use going forward.

Advice was needed concerning the correct approach to alterations and extensions to this early nineteenth-century, classical manor house, which was originally built as a rectory. Having assessed the significance of the listed building, we advised the client on a best-practice approach.

Farm complex   Dartmoor Location

Working for an architect, at his own country home, AHC was engaged to investigate a mediaeval farm complex on Dartmoor. Through our analysis of this early, cross-passage house, we were able to unravel the history of the house and help the owner make informed decisions regarding its restoration and conservation.

Bibury Court

This sensitive sixteenth-century listed building is now a large, private hotel. The House was built in the 1550s as a small gabled manor house and was extended dramatically between 1629-33.  The building underwent further piecemeal changes in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including some important Art Deco design work in the cocktail lounge. AHC was called in to produce an architectural and historical appraisal of the building and to advise architects on the possible expansion of the hotel.

  Blunsdon St Andrews

Following archival and historical research into this Grade I church remodelled by William Butterfield, our findings were used to secure a substantial repairs grant for re-roofing from English Heritage. The church dates from the thirteenth century when the nave was built and, in common with other churches in the High Victorian period, was heavily restored.  Much of the church was rebuilt, including the roof, between 1863 and 1868.

  Bruton Tower

We were contracted by the National Trust to carry out historical research into the history, original purpose and architecture of the Bruton Tower prior to its repair. The Tower had never been given a definitive date of construction nor had its original purpose ever been determined. AHC was able to enlighten the Trust on both these questions.
