Historic Derbyshire out-building conversion on site

This historic out-building is located within the Bonsall Conservation Area. The property is a substantial, two-storey, historic building located at the rear of the main house with access to its first floor (via stone steps) at the side of the house. It is built in rubble limestone with sandstone dressing, some brickwork and a clay tiled roof and is dated 1859. We believe from its general design & form that it was built for a specific purpose, perhaps commercial, but is now domestic ancillary storage for the main house.

The proposal is to convert it into a residential dwelling with entrance hall, and kitchen/diner on the ground floor and a living room, bathroom & bedroom on the first floor as well as adding a whole new floor and raising the roof to provide a master bedroom in the roof space. To safeguard its historic character and appearance, careful consideration had to be taken with the detailed design of the replacement window and door frames.
