Walden House, Huntingdon

The conversion and refurbishment of a substantial Grade 2* Listed House in Huntingdon. Walden House dates from the 17th Century and was built by Sir Lionel Walden, Mayor of Huntingdon. The project secured the future of the building through securing permission for enabling development within the grounds that helps to fund the project and then through the conversion of the building into seven apartments. 

During the 20th Century the building suffered from neglect leading to decay of the fabric and through the addition of inappropriate extensions to the rear. The project included removal of the extensions and reinstatement of the facades to their condition during the Victorian period, for which there was good evidence. 

The project also included a programme of repairs to the structure and facades.
