Coach House Conversion in Herefordshire
The Coach House originally formed part of the Burley Gate coaching inn which is Grade II Listed. In recent times the building was being used as machinery storage and without meaningful use it would slowly fall further into disrepair.
Planning and Listed Building consents were granted for the conversion to a two bedroom dwelling with associated works that included a new roof structure. Traditional agricultural buildings suffer from poor natural light internally. The proposal addresses this by inserting new windows and rooflight openings and fully glazed panels to the coaching doors allowing natural light to flood into the building. The conversion utilised many of the existing features including setting segments of coloured glass into the existing diamond hit and miss vents in the brickwork. The installation was carried out by local specialist Ark Stained Glass who are normally accustomed to working on Churches and Cathedrals. The feature creates and array of coloured light throughout the room. Alex worked closely with the client and Contractors throughout the whole process and the project was delivered on time and budget.
The new tenants of The Coach House are delighted with the outcome who intend to stay for many years. The property was marketed by Bespoke Property Management who are a professional letting agent based in Ross-on-Wye. They offer a unique service providing country house rental properties and we can highly recommend their services.
This project was worked on by and completed, by Alex Whibley whilst employed by RRA Architects Ltd.
