Painstaking craftsmanship has brought this beautiful, but neglected old house, The Little Manor House, some parts of which date back to the 16th century, back to its former glory.
Work included extending four different areas of the house, complete refurbishment of the interior and adding a new kitchen and bathrooms. They also built a new triple garage with wine cellar below and playroom above, a thatched pool house, an office building and landscaping of the garden and pool.
What the customer said:
"Anthony Williams employs a highly skilled and very likeable team of craftsmen who are great to work with. I highly recommend them.."
What the Master Builder of the Year judges said:
"The aim of this project was to provide a fully modernised and extended property, meeting the clients' requirements. It required a high quality finish reaching the current standards of insulation and efficiency, whilst maintaining the integrity of the original building. All of this has undoubtedly been achieved and this is a project of which all involved can be justly proud. "It is a great example of excellent teamwork between the client, the architect and the builder."
