Restoration Rescue

Ye Olde Bluestone dwelling built in the 1800’s had fallen by the wayside in dire need of restoration before completely succumbing to mother nature’s grasp.

The plan – Restore the original stonework to its former glory using traditional building methods and mortar, re-point the entire building, add a roof and some clever carpentry and presto, a functional guest stay for the owners of this property.

Stonehedge also gave the ‘freshwater’ pool area a facelift. The busy looking original stonework was replaced by handcrafted sandstone machined on site and installed with neat and tidy lineage throughout.

The Bones

Sandy Residence

Originally built in the 1800’s this cottage, now without a roof for protection from the weather for some years, was slowly deteriorating. Built using local bluestone and lime mortar, Ken Sandy saw the benefits of restoring part of the heritage of the area.

R and R

Repairs were made where required including brickwork, new lintels, window sills and foundations before the cottage was re pointed using traditional lime mortar

Cottage Restored

Upon completion of the stoneworks, a new roof was installed, entire interior fit out and wrap around decking adding a new lease of life to this once derelict cottage

The Freshwater Pool

Sandy Residence

Too many small fiddly pieces of sandstone originally used to pave around this pool were removed and large slabs brought in and machined on site and installed to give this pool  a real lift and create a nice flow on effect
