Mr D. Price & Dr. C. Houlton


“Nicholls undertook a total restoration of our Grade II listed property including a new build extension. Mutual trust was established from our first meeting, and ‘Wow!’ did they deliver, exceeding all expectations to give us a beautiful home. The 18-month project has been an enjoyable journey working with an engaging and personable team of professionals, albeit supplemented with lemon drizzle cake!

The quality of workmanship was exemplary with each individual taking a professional and personal pride in their contribution. Refurbishing a 16th century house throws up the unexpected. These challenges demonstrated the knowledge and experience within Nicholls and, equally important the empathy, to retain and restore the character of the building. This extended to the construction of our linked extension where modern building techniques prevailed with eco-credentials. Communication throughout their company is impressive, supported by a backroom team who “oil the wheels” to make it happen.

Thanks to Richard and his team we have a 16th century home linking to a 21st century extension sitting in perfect harmony.”
