INTRODUCTION

The Grange comprises a group of Grade II and Grade II* Listed buildings arranged around a courtyard. The buildings are a mixture of styles including Tudor oak frames, fine Tudor brickwork, and Georgian facades with large sash windows.

The Grange started life as a Coaching Inn, known as The Swann and was later Council offices incorporating Stevenage’s Registry Office.

The challenges of the site were firstly incorporating a new build element which was sympathetic to the eclectic mix of existing period styles and the restoration, in some cases replication, of original features which had either been left neglected or been entirely lost.

The building was successfully converted into 8 townhouses and 6 apartments by City & Country and was the winner of the Bronze Award for Best Restoration at The What House? Awards in 2000. The judges commented:

"The work upon these buildings is the result of valuable co-operation between presentation, restoration and renovation. The work allowed the recording of information about methods of construction used at various times in this locality and has added to both knowledge and scholarship. This partnership between a commercial and responsible approach is important if lessons are to be learnt for the future."

Testimonial
"The key I think to finding a successful use for historic buildings is to combine pragmatism with imagination, and to support that process with expertise and sensitivity. The success which City & Country has brought to some very difficult buildings shows that their approach is not, like other developers to push for a one-size-fits-all solution, but to tailor their work in a way which retains all the character of those buildings while respecting the built heritage."

Dr Lee Proseer, Curator (Historic Buildings), Kensington Palace and Kew Palace
