The London Borough of Enfield is seeking an architect-led team for the £6 million revamp of the Grade I-listed Forty Hall and its Grade II-listed gardens.
An OJEU notice calls for 'architectural/lead consultant services for the necessary structural repair, restoration and enhancement' of the Hall and its grounds, which date back to 1629.
Built by Sir Nicholas Raynton - who was Lord Mayor of London in 1932 - the red-brick Forty Hall is described in Buildings of England
as one of ' -a number of progressive, compact brick houses built at this time by City men in the London countryside.'
Under the OJEU notice, a landscape architect will be appointed to restore the grounds - which include lime avenues, a lake and fountains - to their former glory.
