Extending or Converting a Listed or Historic Building
If you are Extending or Converting a Listed or Historic Building, ensure you obtain the correct advice so that you can create a comfortable family home.
Buying a Listed or Historic Building has in recent years been something that may scare homeowners away from purchasing their dream property, as it is often perceived that they will be extremely restricted in making the building their home and they will not be able to complete the alterations and extensions they have envisioned.
This couldn’t be further from the truth, buying a Listed or Historic Building does incur some consideration as the properties status will restrict the extent of works you can carry out but providing your plans are in-keeping, considerate and designed to a nature that not only flows with the original building, but is justified for your use and impact then there is no reason not to carry out the works. We have produced a Listed Building Guidance which will give you more details regarding how you go about achieving Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent.
Here at G Dolden Associates, we are one of the few companies that specialise in the conversion, adaptation and extension of listed buildings. Our design team will be able to advise on the best option for your proposed plans and use their extensive knowledge of the historic and listed building technology and listed building consent to ensure you are successful with your project.
Remember buying a listed building isn’t for everyone there is no reason why they cannot be upgraded to provide a stylish character home but in a way you are preserving the heritage of England for future generations.
