Preston Cottage

Preston Cottage was first visited by Calderpeel early in 2016, Harry Calder was asked by very good friends whether or not he believed Preston Cottage was a ‘good buy?’ his initial response was NO. The building being Grade II listed and a challenge for anyone over 5’7’’ ensured it’s restoration was going to be a headache. His friends’ passion for the house to become a home persuaded Harry to engage. Slowly but surely the design evolved. The original house was built in 1547 by the De Trafford family and was originally 3 cottages. The name ‘Preston Cottage’ is a reference to the fact that Brooke Lane was originally Preston Lane. During the cottage’s life, there was a period when the cottages were left to wrack and ruin in the 1960’s only to be restored in the early 70’s – prior to being a chosen building for a new planning status, namely listed!

The priority from Calderpeel’s perspective was achieving a solution for ‘Preston Cottage’ to have a sustainable solution for its future, not restoration and conservation as a museum piece, but for Preston Cottage to become a modern desirable home – ensuring it’s longevity.
