Three storey extension at Cherry Burton Hall
Cherry Burton Hall is a large scale country home set in acres of open fields. The house was originally built in 1790 and re-modelled in 1857, it has now been transformed from its original seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and three reception rooms, to boast eleven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four reception rooms and study.
Delaney Marling Partnership worked with the clients’ architect to project manage the works to develop the west wing extension. It was expertly built to seamlessly match the building’s original features; from woodwork to made-to-order radiators, with no detail overlooked.
From the initial architect’s plans, Delaney Marling Partnership as chartered building surveyors, project managers and principle designers (under CDM15) conducted a full survey of the property, put together the specification and tender pack.
Managing the contractor who was tasked under the contract to use materials such as, Westmoreland slate roof tiles sourced from the roof of the Canadian Embassy in London. Together the team ensured that the challenging task of mirroring the original building’s classic architecture was executed without a hitch.
The works included the demolition of a later two storey extension and replacement with a three-storey west wing to the property.
When it came to the interior design of the house, the sky was the limit with many of the rooms themed. From the reclaimed French oak floorboards that can also be found in Buckingham Palace, to the living moss wall, inspired by the interior at San Francisco International Airport.
Delaney Marling Partnership is proud to be a part of the building’s history.
