Back in 2013 we acquired a Grade II* listed building in Narrowgate Alnwick, which is on the English Heritage at Risk register.
We have exciting plans for the property and grounds, we plan to restore the main house retaining as many of the original features as possible and convert it into serviced apartments along with a Creperie in the basement. We also plan to add 3 Mews houses in the grounds and these would also become serviced apartments. The apartments would become part of the Stablewood Coastal Cottages portfolio.
Following a detailed review and selection process we have engaged the services of Spence and Dower Architects, who are Heritage experts, to work with us on this hugely important project and in October 2016 we were granted planning permission for the project. We will soon be carrying out emergency repairs to protect it over the winter while we work through the very complex detailed construction planning in order to move the project to the next stage of development helping to safeguard the property and ultimately remove it from the ‘At Risk’ register.
We expect renovation to commence in 6 months and completion in 18 months to 2 years.
We will be posting regular reviews of progress so watch this space!
