Works to the grade ii listed property on the medieval street of Marygate, York involved the alteration to its rear garden room and adjoining internal spaces, including:

• Careful removal of existing single storey structures within the garden area
• Rationalisation of internal spaces to create a new Utility room
• Extension with Crittall Style metal framed glazing system and zinc roof to create a new garden room
• New heating and electrical systems installed to bring them upto date with current standards
• Consolidation and repair of existing protected masonry features
• Landscaping scheme involving both hard features such as reclaimed Cathedral grade Yorkstone paving and soft features including planted borders.

The addition of the Garden Room has been designed to create a connection between the oldest parts of the property and the garden with the transparency of the glazing system on 3 sides of the projecting structure, aiding key sightlines.

30 Marygate is nestled in a row of early 19th century properties with narrow accessways to the rear of each property, creating unique logistical challenges for the site team.

The client and neighbours were amazing and fully supported the scheme which made the project even more pleasurable for Pinnacle Conservation Ltd.
