The Georgian Bath Crescent House refurbishment

The Hall

This property is a lateral conversion of 2 crescent houses on the ground floor with its own entrance. Consequently, the hall is of grand dimensions in the lateral and perpendicular as there is no staircase. Woodchester lifted a threadbare carpet, prepared the sub surface to create a level and moisture free sub-base. A French oak, wide plank, quarter-sawn floor was laid and secured with oak plugs. It was antiqued and sealed with Danish oil.

The intricate plasterwork was prepared and re-painted. The walls prepared and painted with Normandy Grey from little Greene. The capacious bookcase was designed with the influence of the reeded and square existing door architecture, suitable cornice work and hand painted in French Grey.

The shutters were sanded to a fine finish to allow a sharp and flat finish in Little Greene. The walls were prepared and finished in Little Greene Normandy Grey.
