Appletree farmhouse won the RICS East of England award for Buiulding Conservation at the awards ceremony on 10th of May.
This project comprised the sensitive and meticulous repair of a Grade II listed Chorleywood farmhouse on the edge of Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Works included careful repairs to roofs, brickwork and timber frames, and the successful use of hot-mixed lime mortar. Many mediaeval details were revealed during construction, such as a window with shutter grooves and diamond mullions, timber stop beads dating back to c1550, and most importantly, two painted mediaeval timber braces dating from c.1500 -1550.
