The renovations included complete re-wiring; full insulation;  installation of new hardwood double glazed windows and doors; a new kitchen; replacement bathrooms and re-painting throughout. During the renovations, the owners worked conscientiously to preserve the original features of this 17th century building such as the oil painting above the fireplace in the entrance hall; the original sweeping staircase; the period fireplaces; the original floors etc whilst ensuring that a high level of modern day comfort was achieved.
