Restoration of the Grade II Listed building, the Old Rectory, is set to begin, as the £5m project sees the historic property saved from dilapidation
Midlands contractor G F Tomlinson is heading up the ‘Rectory Gardens’ project, which will restore the Old Rectory back to its former glory.
The Georgian style building will be transformed into four separate homes titled The Gatehouse, The Lodge, The Cottage and The Rectory, each with their own entrance and garden.
Within the grounds of The Old Rectory site, there will be three new executive homes named Beech House, Cedar House and Oak House.
The Grade II Listed building dates back to mid-1700s and has a host of Georgian features, including an original square stairwell complete with wooden cantilever stairs, south-facing elevated gardens and large rooms.
The Old Rectory – located in Clifton Village – sits alongside a number of historic buildings close by.
Group property manager at G F Tomlinson, Siman Preston, said: “We are excited to begin works at The Old Rectory and bring a new lease of life to the iconic Georgian building in the heart of Clifton Village. We believe the luxury housing within Rectory Gardens will complement the historic surroundings, as well as welcome new residents to the sought-after area.
“All the development team at G F Tomlinson are looking forward to seeing the development progress and provide high-quality homes befitting the surrounding area. The properties will be constructed with our usual high level of care and attention to detail, and we will be using the finest materials and latest specifications which will deliver a new housing scheme we can all be proud of.”
Director of CBP Architects, Simon Birch, commented: “We are delighted to be working with G F Tomlinson to deliver this exciting project which will restore and renovate the Grade II listed former Rectory and adjoining buildings into high-quality residential homes, with the benefit of a further three top quality residential properties to the rear of the grounds.
“CBP have worked closely with Thomas Street, Conservation Officer for Nottingham City Planning, to ensure that the heritage assets which have survived years of dilapidation, are respected and restored as part of the finished design. These highly desirable, top-quality homes will perform well for their new owners and will complement the Clifton Village rich architectural history.”
Jamie Bodle, regional sales manager at Haart Estate Agents, added: “Haart West Bridgford is delighted to be working in partnership with G F Tomlinson on such a historic project.
“The restoration of The Old Rectory will provide a boost to the local residents of Clifton Village and surrounding areas, and we anticipate interest to be very high in the conversion itself, as well as the executive new build homes within the grounds.”
The Rectory Gardens project is being delivered alongside CBP Architects and Haart Estate Agents.
