Somersham Park House

The Georgian Group Architectural Awards 2005
Commended Award for the Restoration of a Georgian Country House

Restoration of derelict Georgian country house with Victorian annex commenced April 2002. The front façade lead had split enabling the guttering to leak into the brick work and internal timbers. A 9 brick height difference had emerged due to subsidence from north to south gable. Ivy had taken a hold on South West gable, spreading through to the North East of the building. All the floors were in the cellar, little of the internal features remained….
