Our Client was moving back to his childhood home after a life travelling the world with the Royal Navy. The house was generally fairly sound, outbuildings in poor condition, but the kitchen was tiny and there was a maze of small dingy, some damp spaces at the rear.
This was possibly the last intact unmolested distiller’s house in Campbeltown, some or all the others having been subdivided lone ago. It sits in substantial grounds with very pretty flanking pavilions, one now used as a garage and garden store, the other originally the wash house with staff accommodation upstairs.
We carried out some significant structural alterations to this category A listed building, removed major walls and some floor to create a double volume over part of what became the new kitchen, a large light filled space which took in the damp cellars to the very rear of the house. We refurbished and reconfigured the washhouse to form a cosy two bedroom cottage for holiday rentals.
