Ogilvie Hall, Suffolk
Ogilvie Hall Ltd
Nick Barber Architects
Following a competitive tender process Pentaco Construction Ltd secured the contract to convert Ogilvie Hall into five luxury homes. The hall was built in 1925 by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie. He bought a large area of land along the Suffolk Coast and developed Thorpeness into a private holiday village to which he invited his friends and colleagues. More recently the mock Tudor building has been used as a sports and social club.
The works included structural improvements followed by the subdividing of the building to form five, two storey dwellings with en-suite facilities. All existing external walls and roofs have been insulated to meet current standards and extensive replacement and refurbishment of the existing windows was required. These luxurious properties boast features such as wood burners, mezzanine floors and bespoke spiral staircases. The bathrooms have all been individually designed with tiled finishes to a very high specification.
Externally, Pentaco Construction have re-rendered and repainted all external wall surfaces and the entire tiled roof has been renewed. The final product is of a very high specification and finished to a quality standard.
