Can I add a conservatory to a grade II listed property?

Last Updated: 13 May 2024


It’s often assumed that because you live in a grade II listed property, you won’t be able to install a conservatory but that isn’t the case. It is legally possible for a conservatory to be added to a listed property. We recently installed one a few months ago at a property near Stalybridge.

The property is a grade II-listed farm building made of traditional stone. The owners were looking for extra living space and light, so we recommended the construction of a conservatory.

The finished conservatory provides additional space and natural light and helps to blur the boundaries between the inside and outside portions of the house. The owners were thrilled with the result.

Of course, for any modification to a listed building, you will need to get planning permission to carry out any work. This isn’t as hard as you may think. We helped the owners of the property through the process of gaining planning permission and this is something that we can offer to all of our clients.

If you want to add a conservatory to a grade II listed property, it will need to be in keeping with the traditional aesthetic of the property too. This means that it will have to be constructed of timber and glass: the conventional building materials of conservatories.
