The old Workhouse in Marlborough, built in 1837 and Grade II listed, has been restored and converted to create cottages and flats as the centrepiece of a larger retirement development.
Specialist conservation work has revealed the beauty of the stonework in this listed building. The communally maintained landscaping is designed to provide a beautiful outlook for residents.
Around the edges of the site, fine mature trees have been preserved but a more unusual feature are the four intimate garden rooms created within the unpromising context of the old workhouse exercise yards.
