Ambassadorial Residence, Kensington Palace Gardens, London W8
Barclay Interiors undertook the full renovation of this Regency 26-roomed property in Kincardineshire, Scotland with the help and guidance of Historic Scotland.
Every room was extensively refurbished. We installed a new roof and cupola, and new joists throughout the house as damp had permeated everywhere. 7 of the 12 rooms in the lower ground floor were opened up to create a large kitchen/dining/living room.
Because of the damp, the house was stripped back to a shell internally, saving every door, and every piece of woodwork and cornicing possible, and new moulds were taken from the saved pieces of the intricate cornicing. The house was carefully reassembled using the original features but adding some modern conveniences like underfloor heating.
