A Grade II listed late 17th, early 18th century Georgian house in the hamlet of West Sandford near Crediton. The new owners wished to carry out extensive repairs to the existing fabric, in particular repairs to the roof, rainwater goods and the maintenance of the solid masonry walls by replacing cement renders with new lime renders and lime wash. The services to the building also needed upgrading. This included the introduction of wood pellet boilers which will minimise the future carbon footprint of running the house: Other work included: New water supply and drainage. Maximising natural light to the centre of the building. Insulation to the ceilings of the first floor and upgrade of joinery. The proposed design changes were to have very little impact on the external appearance of the property. The earlier parts of the building (rear staircase, core masonry walls) were subject to repair only.
