OLF were retained to undertake the Main Contract and a full Construction Management service for this complete internal and external renovation. We installed a basement addition under the footprint of the house and garden. The significant challenges of excessive groundwater, restricted access and existing structure were overcome.

All of the rooms have been completed to the very highest standard of finish. The cinema and golf simulator room is exceptional and has achieved the combination of elegance and extraordinary functionality. Exceptional features such as the fish tank in the games room, the glass staircase in the wine cellar, the cantilevered stone staircases and the gymnasium makes this an outstanding project.

The refurbishment also involved the installation of a new roof extension, new services through out, a bespoke kitchen and a sophisticated management control system. The new garden involved the installation of mature trees and shrubs to the front and rear.
