Bywell Hall, Northumberland
Bywell Hall is a Grade II* listed privately owned 18th C country house located in Northumberland. The building has been owned by the same family since its construction and improvements have been made with the assistance of John Dobson Architect during the 19th C. The current owners of the Hall gave Datim the brief to refurbish the living accommodation to suit their family needs.
Working to strict conservation guidelines the works involved removing non original fixtures and fittings, repairing the stone façade, installing a hand built open plan kitchen, refurbishing and polishing hardwood floors, refitting bathroom suites and redecoration. All works had to be phased and planned to minimize disruption to the occupants of the hall. All of this work around valuable antiques and artefacts.
Scope of Works
Following careful removal of the existing kitchen, bathrooms and a redundant pedestrian lift, walls were repaired and lime plastered, floors were replaced using matching hardwoods and plaster cornices were made good. Datim Joiners expertly stripped and restored original timber sash windows and installed the new hand built open plan kitchen. The specialist decoration works involved sourcing and hanging hand printed wall papers and polishing featured doors, moulded skirtings and staircase balustrades.
