Horseheath Lodge is an impressive eight bedroomed, nineteenth century manor house in Cambridge. We completed a full renovation of this property, using reclaimed bricks and lime where appropriate, to ensure the works we completed were in line with the existing brickwork and the original appearance of the building.
We place great importance on maintaining the traditional appearance of properties such as this, which is why we refurbished and re-used the traditional Victorian radiators when we installed the new central heating system.
Other internal works included extensive electrical work and the removal of inappropriate stud walls which, over the years, had been used to divide the larger rooms. We also laid new tiled floors, created marble en-suite bathrooms to the existing bedrooms, and re-fitted four further bathrooms to the high standards expected within this type of property.
The house was also completely re-roofed, including all lead work and box gutters, and the windows were restored to their original size and style. Within the grounds of the property we created new courtyards, using existing old Yorkstone paths, which meant the courtyard remained in keeping with the setting. Additionally, the existing farmyard was converted to a stud farm with equestrian ménage and the barns were converted to stable blocks.
Horseheath Lodge now provides the best of both worlds, as a wonderful family home providing the perfect blend of traditional values and modern living.
