Cedar Lodge


Despite the pressures brought on by Covid 19 we are moving towards the completion of a major renovation of Grade 2 listed Cedar Lodge, the former family home of Iris Murdoch in Steeple Aston, Oxfordshire.

The project has been completed under a JCT Intermediate form of contract with Contractor’s design with Richard Spencer Builders of Deddington leading a team of principal subcontractors in C T Walters (electrical) and Curtis and Carder (mechanical).

The final few weeks have been testing with the lockdown resulting in inevitable delays but the final result has given the Client a very fine period family house sympathetically restored and extended by a team of skilled craftsmen respecting its historical importance and retaining and enhancing all aspects of its period character in close consultation with the Conservation team at Cherwell District Council.
