Tattenhall, Cheshire

Within a Conservation Area, this derelict cottage still retained original 17th Century features, establishing its status as a ‘’non-designated heritage asset’’.

The extended cottage is substantially rebuilt in reclaimed brick and slate from local sources, with natural stone cills, tapered flat-arch window heads and new oak framing. Original rooms with oak beams and an inglenook fireplace are retained alongside new contemporary spaces with extensive glazing, to take advantage of key views and sunlight.

A long south-facing terrace and pool complement the linearity of the house, with the rest of the grounds sown with meadow grass to provide a semi-naturalistic rural setting.
