This 18th century ‘B’ listed cottage, prominently located in the conservation village of Collessie, was restored for a local developer in 1998.

Derelict, but with some of the original thatch and pine roof remaining, the house required a complete restoration. The roof structure was carefully repaired and a Tay reed thatch roof reinstated with eyebrow dormers and a clay and blueberry turf ridge.

The modern cement render was carefully removed, reclaimed stone used for masonry repairs and a traditional lime harl and limewash finish applied.

Care was taken to preserve original pine joinery, windows, ironmongery and crown glass. Reclaimed pitch pine was sourced for the new stairs, flooring and doors.
