Project Value: Circa £750k
Project Type: Refurbishment
Duration: 6 Months
Sector: Residential + Commercial

Number 19 Eastgate Row is a beautiful five-story Grade II listed building set in the heart of Chester, Cheshire, and dates back to the 1860's.

Spatial were contracted to provide sensitive Grade listed refurbishment works to this iconic building and to convert it delicately into airbnb accommodation.

The scheme consisted of four one-bedroom apartments to be created along with the refurbishment of the existing two-bedroom penthouse apartment.

The works completed were necessary to enable the appropriate conversion into residential use whilst also respecting and retaining the original historic features of interest as noted in the Heritage Impact Assessment provided by Henderson Heritage.

Spatial had to work in line with a conservation officer to strip back the building to structure and build back up all the floor levels whilst preserving the inherent materials.

The project saw the delicate refurbishment of 5 apartments spread over 4 floors and a retail unit to the ground floor level. The top floor flat has a rear balcony with stunning views which overlooks Chester Cathedral to the north.
