The Old Vicarage

The Old Vicarage is a large detached ex-Vicarage which dates back to early Victorian times with subsequent extensions and alterations in the late Victorian and early Edwardian period. Our project involved the addition of a large, three storey extension and the internal refurbishment of the property.

The new extension had to blend in with both the original part of the building and its subsequent additions. A mixture of new bricks were chosen and the original brickwork features were reproduced on the new extension. New windows and doors were purpose made by copying the originals whilst adding double glazed units and draught excluders.

The original chimneys were found to be in need of urgent attention and two of them were completely rebuilt. The remainder were repointed and new bricks inserted as required, maintaining the original appearance as much as possible.

Internally, the original features of the existing house were repeated in the new parts including doors which matched the originals whilst meeting the building regulation requirements for fire prevention. All architraves and skirtings were matched throughout.

Externally, the house was redecorated and cast iron gutters and downpipes were renewed and extended as appropriate. The driveway and external paving was adjusted to suit the extension and re-laid.
