Church Row is an important terrace of early eighteenth century houses. This Grade 2* listed house, today the home of a writer of contemporary fiction and her husband, was once the home of the 19th century author, Wilkie Colllins.
The project included the refurbishment and repair of the external envelope of the building, together with the replacement of all roof coverings. The building has extremely unusual early 18th century box sash windows that were carefully repaired, incorporating the reuse of much of the original crown glass. The project included the structural repair of floor girding beams at each level, the complete overhaul of the fully panelled interior, re-instatement of several fireplaces and new servicing.
Butler Hegarty Architects designed several elements of new joinery and advised the client on all re-decoration of the building. The basement was refurbished as a guest suite and provided utility space to service the main house. Other work included the remodelling of a modest 20th century rear extension, the creation of a rear terrace entrance and the redesign of the garden.
