Sash Window Renovation, Ulverston, Cumbria
Stone Cross Mansion is a Grade II listed mansion on the outskirts of the historic market town of Ulverston, Cumbria. The mansion was built in limestone to a Gothic/Scottish Baronial style between 1874-79.
Sash Windows Northwest are using their specialist expertise to renovate and draught-proof the existing sash windows. We are installing slim lite double-glazed units into existing frames, coupled with our draught proofing system to make the windows energy efficient. The rotten sills are being replaced in European oak with Accoya splice work. Ensuring the sash windows are restored back to complete working order, working hand in hand with the architects and conservation officers so that the windows are restored to their former glory.
To protect the future of the mansion it was allocated, along with the grounds, for Residential Enabling Development in the South Lakeland Local Plan. Planning permission was granted earlier in 2016 for 19 apartments in the mansion itself, conversion of the Gatehouse into one bungalow and for the building of 45 new houses in the grounds. The conversion works have been carefully designed to respect, with minimum intervention, the significant features, assets and spatial arrangements of the existing building.
This development will ensure that Stone Cross Mansion and it's grounds remain an important heritage asset, restoring it's former public glory to make a positive contribution to the fabric of Ulverston and its historic environment for years to come.
