Case Study 1

Blackbird cottage in Cambridgeshire

Grade 2 listed thatched cottage (c 1600) . Comprises 2 bedrooms with original plasters such as chalk and straw and the ground floor lounge areas with a mid 80s rebuilt chimney kitchen / bathroom rebuilt and extended several times over the last 100 years.

We have Followed tradition and completely replaced and updated both kitchen and bathroom and added soft grey stone floors throughout the ground floor giving a feeling of light and space.

Gas mains have been brought into the cottage for the first time in its life and electrical wiring updated to today's specifications. The addition of stone and oak will keep its character for many hundreds of years ahead.
