Village Farm in Dunham Massey restored for the National Trust
B & E Boys Ltd has now completed the refurbishment and restoration of the Village Farmhouse, at Altrincham for The National Trust. Works began on the Village Farmhouse in April 2011, when B & E Boys Ltd were appointed as the Main Contractor by The National Trust .
The building is a three storey, five bedroomed, Grade 2 listed building, and all works were completed in keeping with the original materials.
The contract was a 20 week contract, which commenced with a full interior strip out of the property. This was then fully re-plastered, and has had the benefit of a new kitchen, and four new bathrooms.
Care needed to be taken whilst carrying out the interior strip out as The National Trust wanted to retain two feature alcoves which were in excess of 200 years old.
The property then benefited from full interior redecoration and flooring. The exterior of the property was fully re-roofed and re-pointed. External landscaping of the surrounding gardens finished this property refurbishment to a high standard.
B & E Boys has 50 years of experience working on historic and Grade 1 and 2 listed properties such as Townley Hall Burnley, St Marys Chambers in Rawtenstall and Toll Barr Business Park in Stacksteads.
It is now the intention of the National Trust to rent this property out.
