Reinstating and upgrading decorative plasterwork at a Grade II house in the North East.
Giving character back to an impressive stone built house.
Back in June 2017, we first quoted for extensive decorative plasterwork to this Grade II listed stone built ex Vicarage circa 1834. As many houses of this era, many of the original period features had been removed in the 1980's to make way for more modern lighting and cleaner lines but the new owners were keen to reintroduce character back into house. With a list of around 12 areas that needed either repair or renovation to existing cornice, brand new cornice and reinstating features such as ceiling roses, it was agreed that work could progress in phases as the homeowners worked through the house.
We were able to help with with advice in choosing from our off the shelf collection of ceiling roses and cornice, ensuring that the choices would fit in with the era of the house, room sizes and also be complimentary to the existing areas of cornice. There were also areas of wall and ceiling that required traditional lime plaster and in the fullness of time, work to be done to create new arches and paneling so this really was an all round job for Ryedale Plasterers.
Work drew to a close earlier this year, and we've been invited soon to get some finished photos of the areas we have worked on so we hope to be posting some Insta-worthy inspirational photos of this beautiful property soon, but in the meantime here are a few before and during work photos, showing the type of work we undertook.
