Penoyre House
Brecon

This magnificent Georgian mansion has been restored and converted into eleven luxury apartments. The private developer was looking for a way to create a conversion that would not only maximise his investment, but also create a very special development. The conversion involved carefully dividing the house without ‘cramming them in’, and addressing numerous building regulations issues relating to the conversion, whilst not compromising the historic integrity of the building. The original coach houses were also converted into 4 mews style houses, and a swimming pool added to the 19th century conservatory.

 

By unravelling the various historic elements of the building we were able to justify significant sympathetic alterations to the building, as well as specifying the repair of elements such as a section of cast iron roof from the original building, the same as that found on the Houses of Parliament.
