Cargengrove

Simon Winstanley Architects

A grade B listed house in the 'Scots Baronial' style on the outskirts of Dumfries, this building was formerly the coach house and stables of the now ruined Cargen House. In addition to extensive restoration and refurbishment works, the project involved conversion of an adjoining cart room and stable block to form a new library and self-contained guest accommodation, a 'garden room' extension within the existing walled garden, extension of the dining area and conversion of an attic space to form an additional bathroom.

The fabric of the existing house is being substantially upgraded by improving the standard of insulation while retaining the character of this unique building. Listed building consent was required for the proposals in addition to planning consent and this was facilitated by close consultation with the planning authority from the outset.
