Staircase Opened Up During Refurbishment

Before and after pictures of the staircase at Dunbeg House, near Fort William.


The existing servants staircase to the basement was cramped and dark. The client wanted to make the lower ground floor of the property feel like part of the house.


The link between the floors has been greatly improved by the removal of a partition wall to enhance visibilty and sense of space on the staircase. The details of the stair have been merticulously matched to those elsewhere in the property. The client used skilled craftsmen to match the wood panneling, spindles and plasterwork incuding the newel post at the bottom of the staircase which was hand carved from Oak.


Helen Lucas Architects oversaw the extensive redevelopment of this Listed Property situated on the banks of Loch Leven.

Renovation of Dunbeg House Completed

Work has finished on the Grade B listed Dunbeg House on the Banks of Loch Leven.


Extensive conservation work has been done to Dunbeg, including a new stair down to the basement to match the existing grand stair, new kitchen, the insulation of internal walls and the addition of ensuite bathrooms to the bedrooms.


Our particular favourite bits include the new barbecue deck, perched on a rocky outcrop above the loch, and the new top floor artists studio.
