As featured in The Yorkshire Post.
Penraevon is an Arts and Crafts Victorian villa built in Leeds in 1881. The Pevsner Architecture Guide to Leeds describes our house as follows:
The most attractive is Penraevon of 1881…Again domestic revival but in stone, with a half timbered gable above an oriel window, leaded lights and pretty timber porch.
We’re writing a renovation blog for our new home. Over time, as we repair, renovate and restore the house, we’ll cover the products we use, the tradespeople we employ and how we explore the space and function of the house. We’ll document what we discover about the history of the house, it’s architects, its features and quirks, how it was used, and even how it changed its name from Redbank to Penraevon to Bushbury and finally back to Penraevon. We hope it will make an interesting read following the repair, renovation and restoration process . We also hope it will become a legacy which will live alongside Penraevon itself. Happy reading! if you want to drop us a line email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
