New build Listed building!

Project Description

RDF Building were appointed to design and construct a new build dwelling that was to be created within the grounds of an existing listed building.

The initial design of the stone fronted single storey gatehouse was hailed by local planners as the “most sympathetic and perfect design” for the development.

The dwelling was erected as a timber frame structure with a stone front elevation and brick to the other three elevations. A timber and aluminium roof lantern was installed, to pay homage to the design of the main building, as were the stone columns and portico beautifully which frame the front entrance.

The dwelling was constructed with high efficiency heating and lighting as well as a media hub system which distributes AV around the various rooms within the dwelling from a single main point. Bespoke sliding sash windows were manufactured in the RDF joinery workshop which were expertly installed into the building allowing it to surpass the requirements of the air test that all new builds must undertake.

Modern sanitary ware was installed alongside bespoke vanity units, doors and a kitchen, as per the clients requirements. A large patio was completed to the side and rear as well as general landscaping works to the site and entrance.
