RENOVATION OF
COUNTRY HOMES

WG Carter has built its reputation as a builder of distinction by consistently delivering high quality renovation projects of country homes and large estates across Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds and surrounding counties. Renovation of country homes is our specialism. It is what we love doing. It is what we excel at.

Our team of craftsmen have the knowledge, skill and passion to carefully renovate beautiful country houses and restore them to glory, bringing them up to date with the latest services and decoration whilst preserving their history and features for future generations.

We have over 70 years of skills passed down from generation to generation, which gives us outstanding knowledge of both historical and modern finishes. Attention to detail is paramount to retain the original features, to meld old and new and to add the latest design features and technology for luxury living.

Understanding the historic building construction and materials

WG Carter has experience in working with old buildings using the latest construction techniques combined with an understanding of the need to remain sympathetic to the historic fabric of the building. We use traditional craftsmanship and techniques alongside reclaimed materials and methods as well as incorporating modern technologies and design styles to create stunning homes. We lovingly restore damaged original features like architraves, fireplaces and skirting boards so that they remain as key characteristics of the building, making them come to life once more for the latest generation to enjoy.

Working with specifiers

Any large renovation project will use a team of professionals from architects to building surveyors to interior designers and landscape gardeners. Our contract managers are some of the very best, with experience in working alongside the professional team and with the client in order to deliver the completed project.
