Our solution

Clague undertook the task of bringing the property up to date in terms of service installations and to specify the repairs to the exterior of the house. The most notable alteration was the reinstatement of Sir Herbert Baker’s library, which in more recent years had been converted into a kitchen area. The alteration had the dual benefit of enabling an original book collection to be relocated to the library to assist in the long term conservation of the books and to allow for greater public access into one of the most significant parts of the house.
