Our Special Works team have recently completed a full refurbishment of this three-bedroomed residential period property, located in a highly sensitive location opposite the Archbishops’ Residence within the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral.

Using traditional methods and materials, the residential property was completely refurbished inside and out. Externally, a new roof was fitted and the chimney rebuilt, new sash windows and a damp proof course installed. Internally, new floors and ceilings were installed, all electrics and plumbing renewed and the property fully replastered. A high-quality new kitchen / utility and family bathroom were fitted, and internal reconfigurations made to create a new en-suite bathroom and a home study area.

Reclaimed period materials were used throughout, repurposed from the property itself or sourced from local specialist suppliers, helping to support circular economy principles.

Close liaison with surrounding commercial and residential properties was managed throughout the whole project, with careful consideration given to the planning of work carried out to cause minimal disruption to other residents and Cathedral events and services.

The completed project brings this period property up to high-quality modern standards, ready for occupation by a member of the Cathedral staff.
