The Apple House

This project involved the restoration and conversion of the ‘B’ listed Apple House to a bridal suite as part of a larger wedding / function venue project.

Originally dating from 1792 by 2008 due to a lack of maintenance and an appropriate use the building had fallen into disrepair and onto the At Risk Register.

The roof was leaking badly, gutters required reinstating. The walls required making good and repointing. The timber sash and case windows required reinstating and repairing. The internal floor, fireplaces and interior, required full reinstatement. The building was generally in a very poor condition.

The interior was reinstated with reference to old photos and what little remained in-situ. The stair and domed ceiling have all been reinstated and repaired. Lime plaster on lath has been used throughout. The timber sash and case windows were repaired / overhauled. The roof was stripped with the slates set aside for reused. Stone work was reinstated and repaired where necessary and the walls fully repointed in lime mortar.

Due to the desire to retain the original form and significance, a green oak framed lean-too was created on the adjacent wall. This contains the servicing and includes a small carport and fuel storage.
