Case Study - The Waun Farmhouse, Penrhos


The Waun, when we were introduced to it, was a dilapidated and derelict building.

Sitting right in the middle of The Waun Farm holding and serving as an agricultural store, surrounded by all the trappings of a modern working farm. It was hard to see the outline of the beautiful building it once was.

We were approached by the owners Mr & Mrs Janes, for help and guidance. They knew that the building was Grade 2 listed and on the at risk register, and that one day they would have to invest in repairing and restoring the property.

Brownstone then took up the challenge. We involved Hernon & Assoc a local practice of Architects and Structural Engineers, who were experienced in Listed Building and Heritage works with whom we had worked with on many occasions

Due to the architectural and archeologically importance of the building and the unique heritage features buried within it. Brownstone worked closely with the Architects, CADW, The Royal Commission, and the Listed Building Conservation Team from Monmouthshire County Council to ensure that the refurbishment and restoration was undertaken and completed in a traditional fashion and strictly in accordance with the many phases the building had past through down the centuries. Such was the interest in the project it was featured on the BBC TWO series Hidden Histories (Series 2 Episode 4).

The Waun Farmhouse is now transformed, back to the prestigious farmers home it was, again at the heart of The Waun Farm
