Listed Town House, Winchester
The project is a Winchester town house. It is a multi-phase building of considerable architectural complexity, dating from the 12th to the 20th Centuries. The oldest surviving structure within the curtilage is the two-bay undercroft of 12th Century date which forms the basement of a part of the house known to the present owners as the ‘Mint’. This undercroft is a feature of outstanding architectural importance.
The challenge has been to obtain a listed buildings consent for a garden room within the curtilage of the ‘Mint’ due to its historic importance. The works include the remodelling of the pool, pool house, redesign of hard and soft landscaping and entrance gates. The main house has been carefully refurbished externally and the courtyard orangery re glazed.
