Outside the rear facades have been completely restored, with the assistance of the Heritage Association. The front façade is yet to be done. Guttering has been replaced as have some roof beams. The pool liner and skimmers and pipework have also all been replaced. Internally, there have been new bathrooms fitted, a new boiler installed, a decorative make-over in part, with painting of beams in lovely muted 'Farrow and Ball' colours. There are just a couple of rooms still to do, but the majority of the work has been done!However, there is still a wonderful rustic charm that pervades the property.
