Period Property Restoration

Period property restoration requires meticulous attention to detail and a thorough knowledge and understanding of the era when the property was built. If you have recently purchased a period property in Edinburgh or East Lothian which is in need of restoring talk to Mackenzie Hughes first. We have over 20 years of experience restoring Edinburgh New Town properties from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras and properties in East Lothian too so we can give you an honest appraisal of what may be required to achieve the authentic period touches you are looking for – but with 21st Century living in mind. We also have excellent business relationships with many of Edinburgh’s top architects and can recommend the one that most closely suits your specific project.

Period property restoration and listed building consent

Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town is among the finest examples of urban planning in Europe. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site which is why owning a property in the New Town comes with certain responsibilities. If you are thinking of buying one, with a view to restoring or converting it, it pays to speak with a building professional, such as Mackenzie Hughes, who are familiar with Edinburgh listed building consent and planning permission. By fully understanding the required guidelines, we can deliver the outcome you are looking for, on time and within budget.

Preserving the character of a property

The City of Edinburgh Council Listed Buildings Guidance Document states “The fact that a building is listed does not mean that changes cannot be made. However, it does mean that any alterations must preserve its character.”

At Mackenzie Hughes we specialise in preserving the character of a period property through the finest craftsmanship and attention to detail. However our passion for interior architecture will allow for modern living with results that are simply breathtaking.
