Director and Architect Julian Clayton was delighted to see the finished renovation of this medieval Manor house nestled in the Somerset countryside on the outskirts of Wellington.

The Grade I listed property was in a neglected condition when it was bought by the current owners, who are experienced in renovating historic buildings. Their instructions to Jonathan Rhind Architects were to renovate this magnificent building to provide a comfortable home without losing the “aged patina” acquired over time which is a major part of its charm.

Julian commented, ‘It was a fantastic project to work on. As a Conservation Architect it is always great to see historic buildings given new life. Working collaboratively with the local Conservation Officer and Historic England we were able to follow the clients wishes and ensure that any alterations were non-destructive and sensitive to the historic fabric as well as sustainable.

At Jonathan Rhind Architects, this is one of the lynchpins of our work – incorporating sustainable and environmentally responsible services into historic buildings to enable comfortable living without compromising the historic value of the building.’

The clients are delighted with their new home and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to work on this important historic property.
