Longdyke Farm Steading, Bilton, Nr Alnwick.
A large rural development of a range of redundant agricultural buildings and sandstone farmhouse to create a stunning 4 bedroomed traditional farmhouse and 6 conversion units of 2 to 4 bedrooms. The completed development incorporated many original and unique features of the buildings to provide homes of outstanding character.
A truly spectacular seaside home built over two storeys with double garage & basement. The build is stone around an oak framed construction with galleried ceilings by oakwrights of Hereford. The main ground floor areas are solid oak with a feature helical staircase in American Walnut.
Attention to detail and a commitment to re-useable resources means that this house incorporates solar PV panels, an underground heat source pump, rainwater harvesting system and a condor waste treatment plant which discharges clean water into a soak-away. That’s not to say there isn’t a gadget or two though – including a built in vacuum system and an integrated Control 4 electronic management system which controls the lighting, heating, TV & audio, alarm and security system!
The client bought a house that was structurally unsound we advised the client it was more economically viable to knock the property down, use the foot print & rebuild. We rebuilt the bungalow adding on attic trusses to gain an extra floor, therefore doubling the floor space of the property. The building was then transformed from an out of date seventy’s building to provide a modern contemporary living space.
Jubilee Court, Howick Street, Alnwick.
In 2005 Stephen Willcox and Brian Weightman won a conservation award for the, Restoration and Redevelopment of Jubilee Court, Howick Street, Alnwick.
Originally the property was an old coach works; in more recent years called The Jubilee Hall with various uses. However when we purchased the site it was in very poor condition, derelict and damaged by heavy demolition.
We restored and converted one of the original properties facing onto Howick Street and built a mixture of town houses and maisonette’s around a cobbled courtyard inside the development.
All the work being carried out sympathetically to the surrounding properties around the development and to a high standard using where required, a blend of reclaimed materials to match a particular architectural feature, or where not possible using our own specialist craftsmen to create modern replacements in a time served traditional way. When needed using modern materials many sourced from recycled products like chipboard flooring, or Timber I-joists.
From start to finish this development has been carried out with care, enthusiasm and quality, using a team of time served craftsmen with pride in their work and completed to a very high standard, combined with the finest materials, many sourced locally made Jubilee Court a most prestigious development and in our opinion worthy of the award we received in recognition.
