Fasque House redevelopment plans submitted
August 1 2011
Designed by @rchitects and The Voigt Partnership for implementation over the next 7-10 years the plans will see construction of “sympathetic” homes alongside conversion of a steading and stable block for holiday lettings, an equestrian centre, farm shop and museum.
Proceeds from this development will go toward the refurbishment of Fasque House and surrounding buildings, home to former Prime Minister William Gladstone’s family in the 19th century and currently deemed to be at risk.
Project architect Paul Fretwell, of @rchitects said: “Groups of historic properties of this nature are notoriously difficult to deal with successfully. Many have been lost or just move through cycles of a lack of investment and maintenance resulting in minimal conservation.
“The historic properties and landscapes at Fasque need to have a specific use and purpose in place so ultimately as a group they can provide for their own needs.
“The proposed plan we have is a unique opportunity to not only conserve this group of nationally significant properties and landscape through enabling development, but to deliver a long term sustainable future as a cohesive group, providing each with a viable use.”
