Comprehensive re-ordering of Grade II listed home

  • Project: Old Vicarage, Shirley Village, Derbyshire
  • Client: Private
  • Contractor: Simon Baines Construction
  • Scale: Five new en-suite bedrooms plus kitchen-dining space
  • Value: £250k

A Grade II listed property dating from 1824 and the birth place of John Cowper Powys in 1872. For many years the house had remained in single ownership and when the new clients took ownership they had a young family with very different needs. 

The brief was to create five bedrooms each with an en-suite and at the heart of the property a new kitchen-dining space. 

Relocating the main kitchen to the centre of the house and adding an orangery to face the garden, all acting as one whole progression of space and use. The formal dining and reception rooms were retained and restored. 

Complete repair and re-ordering was carried out with a slated re-roof and comprehensive insulation.
