Works are bounding along for the former Lifeboat Inn at Wells-next-the-Sea with scaffolding erected all around. The building now has a new roof, and is proudly displaying what a stunning front façade it has in its new dramatic colourway.
Remodelling and restoration of the interior to restore it to its Georgian plan form will begin imminently. The insensitive flat roof modern extension is to be demolished and a new modest single storey extension which respects the heritage of the property will be built.
The end creation will be a fabulous seven double bedroom holiday rental property. The majority of the bedrooms will have en-suites which is perfect for extended family breaks, whilst the ground floor will boast a huge lounge, dining, kitchen area with utility, library, separate dining room, snug, games room and conveniences.
These renovations are saving a grade II listed building from further potential decline and rejuvenating it on to the next stage of its life. It will be an exquisite offering in a charming location, and Georgian grandeur and order will reign once more.
We very much look forward to following its progress. If you own a tired property or have your eye on what you think could have potential but would like to talk to an expert about your options, why not get in touch with us?
