Gothic conservatories ripe for renovation

A Gothic Grade one listed country house in Wales which features elaborate conservatories has been identified as one of Wales worthiest contenders for a restoration.

Online resource the Western Mail explains that Hafodunos Hall in Llangernyw is one of the principalitys most "at-risk architectural gems".

Renowned 19th-century architect Sir George Gilbert Scott designed the edifice between 1861 and 1866.

His son, John Oldrid Scott was employed in 1883 to design the intricate conservatories for the Venetian-inspired building.

The resource notes that Sir John Betjemen emphasised the houses importance as on of the finest Gothic homes in Wales.

A fire gutted the main portion of the property in 2003 but the conservatories remained undamaged and a structural engineer has concluded that the structure is perfectly re-usable.

Meanwhile, online resource the Shropshire Star recently noted that conservatories remain the most popular option for people looking to add room to their living space.
