Greenbank Hall - restoration of Georgian mansion now on site

The restoration of the Georgian mansion on Eaton Road in Chester is underway!!   Our Conservation Management Plan is complete and I will upload photos of work as it progresses on site during the summer and autumn.  Schemeglobal Properties (Chester) Ltd. are the developer and Owen Ellis Architects are acting project architects for the refurbishment, restoration and new build.  It promises to be a fantastic development of contemporary houses within the grounds of the Mansion and an exemplary restoration of a sad, down-at-heel, mansion which was developed by John Swarbeck Rogers, a Chester Mayor, in the 1820s to show off his new status in society.  It was last used as an educational building but a legacy of this use has left the building bereft of details, many of which are being restored.
