The origins of this unique property near Doncaster can be traced back as far as the 12th century, when a priory was first built on the site. Indeed, parts of the original structure still remain, and even though most of the house is not quite so venerable, it does show its considerable age in features such as the small windows which admit little daylight.

This was one of the reasons why the owners wanted to build a conservatory - so that there would be at least one part of the house flooded with light. But it required all our experience and the sympathetic design skills of Town & Country’s Brian Garner, to create a conservatory which would be in harmony with the house, and which would meet with the approval of the historic buildings inspectors. Traditionally constructed in local limestone and European Oak, the 6 metre square structure is built into a courtyard, surrounded by the house on three sides, but connected to only one, thereby minimising structural alteration to the house itself.

The overall height of the conservatory is kept at an unobtrusive level by the unusual roof design, featuring a central flat section. Inside, this section is boarded in oak, which, in turn, echoes the oak-strip flooring.

From the outside, the imposing full-height double doors are topped by a pediment which subtly matches the angle of the gable end to its left - just one more feature which reflects our commitment to building conservatories which are not just made to measure, but also designed to harmonise with and enhance the character of the property as a whole.

Our price to further design, manufacture, deliver and install a similar conservatory today, is approximately 84,000.00 excluding Vat and associated preparatory and finishing building works.
