Private Grange, Oldstead

It is coming up to a year since CG began works on this residential heritage property situated at Scencliff, close to the beautiful Byland Abbey. 

The now grade II listed Grange was first constructed in the mid 18th century as a farmhouse with the front of the house south-facing over the sunken garden looking out across the rolling North Yorkshire countryside views. 

A year on, with works set for completion in December 2022, it is fair to say this property is unrecognisable after the major internal and external renovation and restoration work which as always has been completed to standards inline with the National Park authority due to the historic nature of the building as well as the location within a conservation area. 

The property has undergone stone masonry restoration including new stone heads, cills and large sections of stonewall replacement, sourced from a local stone supplier. 

With new timber windows and a new handmade William Blyth Old English pantile roof and installation of new conservation rooflights, this property is upholding its heritage looks. 

Specialist lime plastering has been completed in the interior of this property, with new decorations added throughout, and looking out to the gardens, you can see the primary home building is not the only thing to have been transformed.

New external landscaping including a new sandstone patio, sunken fire pit as well as new garden steps and walls will allow our clients to take full advantage of the views the garden overlooks. 

On top of this, a newly built timber birch cladded gymnasium with a zinc roof has been added, as well as a refurbishment to the existing tennis courts alongside a new timber built oak framed garage. 

With this project anticipated to be completed in just a couple of months, it’s clear to see that a transformation has taken place with necessary attention to detail maintained in order to uphold the heritage of the original buildings.
