Before & After: Rawreth Hall

Chilstone recently completed a new addition to historic Rawreth Hall in Essex. A member of our architectural department, Sam Walter, designed a handsome portico for the fine old building and you can see for yourself what a fine appearance it has. The hall, rebuilt in the reign of Queen Victoria, has been in existence since the 13th Century. There are many references to the hall in the history of Essex and the nearby Cart Lodge which appears on a map of 1793. On the grounds of Rawreth Hall stands a Grade II listed barn, built during the Napoleonic wars and one of the very few original Essex barns in existence Sam's work is a good example of how sympathetic additions can dramatically improve the appearance of buildings and incidentally increase the value of properties. These kind of projects are surprisingly affordable and straightforward to manage. Here is the building before the restoration... rawreth hall-before                             And here's the finished result...!   rawreth-hall-after For more information visit:
