Hilton Hall

The Raby Building Projects Team have begun to embark on the refurbishment of Hilton Hall. Hilton Hall is located in the Hamlet of Hilton and is a Grade 2* Listed Building on the national list of
historic and architecturally important buildings.

During the investigative works the team have uncovered historic features of the former chapel of St Catherine, a chantry to Staindrop Church. We have worked closely with Durham County Council and Historic England to make sure all works are carried out to retain the historical importance and features of the Hall.

The Hall will become part of Raby Estates’ residential let portfolio and will comprise of 4 bedrooms with 2 en-suites, large kitchen and living room with original decorative features. Work has also begun to carefully restore the ceiling mouldings throughout the Hall, replacing areas that have been damaged over the history of the Hall. The Projects Team are to sympathetically restore the property with careful thought and vital input on design features and layouts from Lord and Lady Barnard. The project is expected to be completed in Summer 2022.

Unthank

Unthank has been progressing steadily since work started in May 2021. The structural work has taken longer than expected due to the northern elevation being rebuilt from the ground up. This is to ensure the property will stand the test of time. All structural work has now been completed and we are moving onto Phase 2 of the project.

The main house roof has now been renewed and the slating is well underway to make Unthank water-tight once again. The next phase will be to install the new timber windows and doors, in keeping with the traditional features of the Upper Teesdale properties. This will be ready for the winter months and internal first and second fix will also be completed in this time.

The projects team are incorporating under floor heating to the ground floor as well as a large open plan kitchen/dining room in the existing Byre. We are expecting to deliver the project on time for Spring 2022 when Unthank will be once again ready for rental.
