Gainsborough House, Cambridge

†††††††††††† Gainsborough was for many years a private residence in northern Hamilton and spending the balance of itís time in Hamilton as a bar & restaurant, eventually being removed for site development. Additions carried out during the period as a restaurant were not very sympathetic to the original house.

†††††††††††† The house came to the attention of the Owners while sitting on drums in a removal yard. Upon purchase the Clientsí brief called for the relocation to a country site and sympathetic conversion of the Hamilton landmark into a spacious , five bedroom family home and homestay for the discerning traveller.

†††††††††††† Before restoration the house† consisted of only the front portion of the original house and had been cut into two sections. No residential facilities remained, so Kitchen, Laundry and Bathrooms had to be provided.
