Completed ornamental plasterwork in an elegant York Regency Villa
It's always a privilege to be invited back to places where we have completed work so we were particularly enthusiastic to see the completed and decorated elegant Regency villa in York. Built around 1833, the property was the childhood home to Arnold Stephenson Rowntree of the chocolate manufacturing dynasty and latterly a hotel for 3 decades. The house still had many of it's original fibrous plaster details so we were delighted that the new owners of this property were keen to keep these period features, plus reinstate others to complete the look. Definitely from the 'repair & restore' school of thought and thankfully not 'remove & destroy', we worked closely with our customer to bring out the best in their house through the ornamental plaster as they renovated from top to bottom.
This attention to detail is evident throughout all aspects finished decor, it really is a beautiful and stylish home worthy of feature in glossy home mags. If you would like to read our first blog about this project and see some 'before' photos, look for 'Restoring period decorative cornice for a whole house renovation' in this latest news section. For now though, sit back and enjoy these photos.
