Listed Building Refurbishment in Rural Hampshire
Rolle House is a Grade II* Listed Building in the early Georgian style and set in a rural location in East Tytherley Hampshire. The building was originally constructed as a school in the early 1700s and remained as a school until the 1930s. In the 1930s it was converted into a dwelling. The house is set in a small landscaped park with a walled garden to the north. Externally there are various outbuildings including a modern barn, garaging, sheds and lean-to’s, a fenced pool area, pool house and a tennis court.
The house has been extensively refurbished and extended reinstating the fine interiors. An orangery overlooking the wall garden has been added to create a large open living space that includes the conversion of the former garaging. The modern barn has been converted and extended to form two dwellings for staff accommodation. The grounds have been landscaped and a new relocated pool area adjacent to the walled garden has been created. The project has required extensive planning and listed building negotiation with Historic England and Historic Environment officers. It has required 7 planning and listed building consents.
