Restoration & Redevelopment


RESTORATION & REDEVELOPMENT





Our aim is to lovingly restore much of the main part of South Ormsby Hall to its 1920’s former glory. This will involve using specialist tradespeople skilled in traditional and authentic techniques to revive and repair.

The basement level will be completely repurposed into a modern home for the custodians to live day-to-day. The west wing will be transformed into six  independent luxury heritage apartments, complete with cinema, swimming pool and spa facilities. Other parts of the estate, including the Old School and the Rectory will also be restored, redeveloped or revived to help the estate become one of the best in the world.

Please have a look through the gallery of images taken during Winter & Spring of 2017. These include the Hall, Parklands, Old School and The Rectory.

Keep coming back to see regular updates the progress being made. Alternatively, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or register as a Friend of South Ormsby Estate to get updates via email.
