A 17th century Grange refurbishment set in the rugged landscape of Coverdale, North Yorkshire

Nestled amidst the rugged landscape of Coverdale in North Yorkshire, a 17th-century Grange refurbishment has stood the test of time. Neglect over the years had taken a toll on the property. The owners recognized the potential of the farmhouse and decided to undertake an extensive refurbishment to restore its former charm and character.

The refurbished house boasts of some wonderful features that have been retained in their original form. The exposed timber beams, stone-tiled roof, and half-a-meter thick solid walls all add to the rustic appeal of the house. The rugged exterior of the property blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings, creating a harmonious balance between the built and the natural environment.

The refurbishment project was not just about aesthetics but also focused on making the house more energy-efficient. Insulating the property was given top priority to ensure that the house remained warm and cozy even in the harshest of winters. The stone staircase leading upstairs adds to the old-world charm of the property and sets the tone for what lies ahead.

The four bedrooms upstairs have been furnished with period furniture and traditional fittings used to each bathroom to add individual character. The attention to detail is evident in the way the rooms have been decorated, giving the property a sense of warmth and homeliness. The barn, which is adjacent to the main house, has been converted into a bunk room, providing additional bed space. The barn can function separately from the house, making it ideal for guests who prefer some privacy.

A Grange refurbishment in Coverdale is a testament to the owners’ commitment to preserving the past while embracing the future. The property’s rustic charm and natural setting make it an ideal retreat for those seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. The refurbishment project has breathed new life into the old property and ensured that it continues to stand tall for many more years to come.
