In November 2015 we started a very interesting project in Ambleside, Cumbria. A five month project to renovate and complete the interior of this Grade 11 listed farmhouse which dates back to 1714. The house is Lakeland stone built with a part roughcast render finish externally, the views are spectacular as the property sits on a hillside overlooking the local town.We have installed four new bathrooms, oak, limestone and York stone floors throughout and completed two kitchens, We have used reclaimed oak to the dining room and entrance hall, all the internal doors were made on site out of reclaimed oak by our specialist carpenters, finishing with blacksmith made thumb latches and strap hinges. All the oak beams were cleaned by hand and finished with beeswax, all skirting and architrave was specially made to suit the original template.
In September 2014 we were introduced to Mrs Karen Lewis by a mutual friend, at our first meeting Mrs Lewis asked if Tricklebank would be interested in building a new home for her, of course the answer was yes particularly as it was a traditional build with a contemporary edge and local to us.Once everything was agreed and contracts were signed we started to clear the site in late November and early December 2014, the site itself was a garden plot in the grounds of Mrs Lewis’s previous home, quite a compact plot but nevertheless in a very desirable area of Freshfield, Formby.Construction started in earnest in January 2015, foundations, drains, services, brickwork commenced out of the ground in February. The house itself is two and a half storey with the master bedroom, walk in wardrobes and en suite on the top floor, four further bedrooms, family bathroom, two en suites and large linen cupboard on the first floor and finally two reception rooms an internal porch, washroom, utility and open plan kitchen and breakfast room leading on to the garden via two pairs of bi fold doors.Internally the house is very well appointed with traditional cornice, architrave and skirting boards matched neatly with oak doors throughout, contemporary bathrooms throughout using Aqualisa digital showers over wet rooms and slimline shower trays.Externally all the windows are treated softwood, the doors are hardwood, both bay windows are topped using traditional lead work, made on site, the slates are reclaimed welsh blue, the chimney pot is also reclaimed, the rear outrigger is faced with cedar and topped with Sarnafil roofing membrane. The house was completed two weeks over the due date due to delays on kitchen appliances and on budget, in all 36 weeks.
