Mansion restored to former glory
01 April 2016
Witanhurst is the largest private residence in London and recently sold for £50 million.
The current house, built between 1913 and 1920, was designed for soap magnate Sir Arthur Crosfield on an 11-acresite. The mansion is Grade-II listed meaning it has been judged to be of national historic or architectural interest. It has 65 opulent rooms spread across three floors, including 25 bedrooms.
The redevelopment of Witanhurst has received widespread attention in the media, much of it focusing on the large basement extension to the main house that extends for two storeys below the entire footprint of the building.
ESL, the industrial cleaning equipment company, were approached to meet the exacting standards of stonework cleaning and original roof tile restoration.
“We were delighted by the results achieved by ESL and their Torbo dustless blasting systems," senior project manager Russell Seagrowt said. "The quality of the surface finish was exceptional, whilst the Torbo systems were quick, efficient and clean allowing us to vastly accelerate the stonework restoration process whilst maintaining the highest quality standards.”
