Morris Property completes the restoration of stunning Ruyton Manor

The extensive restoration of Ruyton Manor, a Grade II listed country manor which dates back to 1870, has been completed by Morris Property.

The breathtaking manor has taken 18 months to complete and has been restored to a high standard and quality finish right down to the smallest detail. The building is constructed of red sandstone coursed ashlar, which Morris Property have repointed and carefully replaced any damaged masonry.

Morris Joinery also had a hand in this spectacular restoration ensuring that all the windows and doors were repaired on site.

All the rooftops were stripped, timbers inspected and repaired where necessary and then any that needed replacing were done so using existing or matching roof covering. This meant that an impressive roof terrace could be constructed which take in spectacular views across Shropshire.

A number of buildings on the estate are now heated by a central biomass woodchip boiler, which is the greener option than oil fired central heating. Biomass boilers reduce carbon emissions, cut heating costs and burn locally grown wood.

Ruyton Manor has now been restored to a fully functioning comfortable family home with new amenities including a new pool house and swimming pool complex, garaging and the creation of a contemporary stainless steel kitchen deck area all of which have been managed by Morris Property.

Ian Galliers of Morris Property said: “This has been a fascinating project to work on and certainly one of the most rewarding. To have the chance to restore such a beautiful country manor was a real pleasure.  It has been a privilege to work with Arrol & Snell, the Architects commissioned for the project, who are renowned for historic restoration.”
