Project Description

The restoration of two eighteenth-century cottages and the development of eight new detached bespoke homes on a 0.8-acre site within the setting of Grade II Listed Marsden Hall in Nelson, Lancashire is now complete.

The Viesta Group is proud to have worked on this fantastic development of luxury bespoke properties based in the Marsden Park Development (See Marsden Park). Built to a very high standard the properties all offer a high specification. All properties will also boast exclusive access to Marsden Park.

Marsden Park dates back to 1555 and the cottages were originally ancillary buildings to Marsden Old Hall, an eighteenth-century manor house. In recent years it had been used as the estates’ offices for Pendle Borough Council.

The project involved the restoration of a listed cottage, an unlisted cottage and the demolition of a redundant barn and greenhouses to make way for the new residences, four three-bedroom properties and four dormer bungalows within a new secure walled courtyard. The design ethos is for the new build element of the development to be subservient to the existing retained dwellings. To ensure the sympathetic restoration of the dilapidated listed building, we worked in close liaison with the conservation officer, local residents and our friends over at Castle Construction UK Ltd to make sure we kept the development to a high standard and meet all conservation regulations.
