Works commence on historic Lake District country house as part of £3m scheme

Ashmeadow House

Knutsford-based Pulse Partnerships has started construction on Ashmeadow House in Arnside, Cumbria.

Sitting in 2.6 acres of manicured grounds, the Grade II-listed Georgian house enjoys 800m of beach frontage to the Kent Estuary with views over to the Lake District fells beyond.

The £3m project will see the building converted into 10 luxury apartments.

The lead architect was NW Architects from Leeds and the main contractor is Pinington, from Lancaster.

Jeremy Hackett, financial director from Piningtons, said: “Pinington as a company are very pleased to have secured the conversion works and are delighted to be working with new clients.

“We, as a company, undertook the initial new build works and property renovation works to this building some 16 years ago, so we were pleased to be brought back in by Pulse to transform the building as it enters it’s next chapter of life.”

Richard McGawley, of Pulse, said: “Ashmeadow House is a stunning property and we are delighted to be able to restore it to its former glory.

“It has incredible views and privacy and yet is just a few hundred metres level walk to all the village’s shops, pubs and amenities. Finding a contractor who could handle the sympathetic, yet comprehensive, conversion works was critical to the success of the project and having seen the excellent workmanship which Pinington’s undertook on the building the last time it was rebuilt, we know they will achieve the quality and finish that this building demands for us.”

The works are scheduled to be completed by Easter 2021 and marketing has just commenced.
