Tresillian House Estate

As part of a series of major refurbishment works to buildings within the cartilage of this Grade II Listed Building, the old laundry and cottage underwent refurbishment and extension and the client also requested reinstatement of an unused and part dilapidated stable block.

The work required detail drawings of all replacement items, such as doors and windows, to comply with the Local Authority Planning Department and Conservation Officer requirements for the building. Replacement doors were of traditional design of boarded, ledged and braced timber construction, with ironmongery to match existing items. The windows were made to match existing and have Georgian glazed panels, with the frame sitting on a Delabole slate sill.

The roof was refurbished with reclaimed Delabole slate in diminishing courses, with mitred hips. Original sections of the building walls were retained and re-pointed with lime mortar. New wall sections, as required, were built of blockwork, finished with a white lime cement render.

One feature of the stable that was particularly special to be retained and refurbished were the rows of slate dovecot openings on the rear elevation.

Status: Building works completed.
