CMS Group Project: Cumberland Villa/Always Sunday House

CMS were appointed as Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Architects, lead consultant and principal Designer for the works at this beautiful Georgian property in Bath. The works included the extensive heritage focused refurbishment of the family home and surrounding gardens.

Cumberland Villa was built on 1824 as part of the Bathwick Hill development by John Pinch. The original building shows a central square structure with an entrance wing to the northern side and a service wing to the south side, creating a symmetrical frontage.

The house has been through various alterations over the years. None of the works undertaken affect the integrity of the Listed Building or diminishes its heritage status:

  • Creating an opening link through to a rear workshop.
  • Creating a more direct route from the front door through a new opening to the kitchen.
  • Widening the kitchen opening to the rear conservatory
  • Refurbishing the original French doors.
  • Replacing sliding doors with a simplified design.
  • Converting dressing room to an ensuite.
  • General repair/ maintenance building works.
  • ADSF Invitation to Tender September 2019
  • Regarding the lawns, whilst retaining flagstone terrace.
  • Full Landscape works

CMS are incredibly proud to have contributed to this Gorgeous Georgian property and we were thrilled to see it feature in The Times recently. Working with Alexis was a joy throughout.
