Rowland Stone have previously worked with the developers Whitecroft Developments Ltd and through our continued quest for an excellent finish the developers came to us again to carry out the work at Treetops.
Treetops contains a substantial Victorian property converted into 3 dwellings along with 3 new builds. Our brief required us to restore the exterior of the existing buildings and blend in the new builds with the Victorian houses in the area.
Starting in the mild September of 2015 this project took one year to complete.
As with any Victorian property the elements took their toll on the existing property. Upon commencement, we had to take down and rebuild the balustrades to the front steps. However, during the dismantling process, we were unable to save the balustrades due to them being so heavily eroded. We had to replace the balustrade with new natural stone to match existing with only the existing heavily eroded balusters to use for a template.
As with any new build the blending process required all our skills to ensure they did not look out of character. What pleases us most is how the stonework compliments the timber on the new builds perfectly.
As of March 2017, there only 2 properties left at Treetops and Rowland Stone were pleased that our efforts helped the developers and estate agents sell those other properties.
