Carr Mount itself was particularly neglected and dilapidated.
Several unsympatheitc extensions had been added and the roof, as well as severely leaking and in need of renewal, had been mutilated in the making way for a rear staircase giving access to the second floor.
The roof was totally renewed, the extensions removed and the floor plan remodelled to give a less obtrusive access to the second floor. A retaining wall was constructed to the rear and side of the house to detach the building from the adjacent bankside. This wall created space for an additional terrace and also for a garage block with a family room over. Fenestrations were reworked to give more balance to the newly exposed elevations.
The interior has been totally restored with all period fireplaces being renovated, a new staircase constructed and most bedrooms now being en-suite.
All internal and external features have been retained including some new ones added and some existing ones being improved.
All materials, and all architectural details used, are faithful reproductions of existing features where details or part details remained.
A high quality hard and soft landscaping scheme has been designed and implemented.
All work has been carried out to the complete satisfaction of the local planning authority and English Heritage.
