Triton were appointed as specialist contractors to undertake structural and conservative repairs to this Grade I Listed Queen Anne house, dated 1694-98.
After cleaning the brickwork and stone dressings, the main entrance 'ramp and twist' staircase was partially dismantled and reconstructed with substantial replacement of the Portland stone components. To the west elevation, a further staircase was dismantled and rebuilt using salvaged and new sections and a further new staircase construced with matching details. Additional masonry works comprised new Portland stone indents to dressings and the supply and fixing of new York stone copings.
Large areas of the brickwork to the main house and stable block had also debonded and extensive areas were replaced with matching units, laid on lime putty mortar and tied back to the inner skin with stainless steel Helifix fixings.
As necessary, failed gauged brick arches were dismantled and rebuilt and at roof level, several large and ornate chimney stacks were dismantled and reconstructed using carved and moulded bricks. Works to the boundary wall, itself Grade II Listed, included cleaning and partial rebuilding and in situ restoration of the ornate modillioned stone cornice.
