Heath House


Chocolate Box Charm.


Heath House in Lydiate was an exciting rebuild and extension of a former two-up, two-down crofter's cottage with a small stable to the rear. Using beautiful reclaimed brick and slate, the property took on an incredible transformation, with the addition of six rooms and a double garage as well as a brand new roof with conservation sky lights and the converted stable which included a split level annex with a mezzanine floor. As well as the extensive building work undertaken by our highly-skilled team, this home was also treated to courtyard style landscaping scheme and cobbled driveway.

"Working with Wickstead Developments has been an absolute joy. Not only is the team incredibly talented and hard-working, but every individual craftsman was passionate about his trade, totally committed to the project and full of innovative ideas. I can't recommend them highly enough."

As always with our projects, the renovation at Heath House wasn't purely exterior. Look behind the doors of this charming property and you'll discover stylish York stone flooring, wide pitch pine floorboards and a bespoke kitchen, all installed by our team of craftsmen. Complementing the character of this lovely cottage even further were a number of cosy touches. From log burner open fires and exposed brickwork to doors with hand forged ironmongery and a traditional free-standing bath tub, every feature was thought about carefully and implemented expertly, making this project a complete joy to work on, both inside and out.
