A Jacobean mansion in Birmingham is in line for two prestigious awards, less than a year after the completion of a £12.5 million regeneration project.
Aston Hall has been shortlisted in the Museums and Heritage Awards for Excellence and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Awards.
Both of the nominations recognise the conservation and restoration of the building, which reopened last summer following extensive work.
Chris Rice, Birmingham City Council's head of heritage services, said: "A great deal of hard work went into the restoration of Aston Hall and the response since we re-opened last July has been amazing.
"To be shortlisted for two prestigious awards reflects all that hard work and the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
"This is one of the country's finest remaining Jacobean mansions, and, most significantly, one of the least altered.
"We're extremely proud of the work that's been done to preserve the house, and to improve its facilities for generations to come.
Aston Hall was closed for two years from 2007 while the redevelopment work was carried out to improve visitor facilities.
Original features were uncovered and restored, with many rooms reinstated to 17th and 18th century colour schemes and condition.
The Orange Room, where Charles I slept, has been opened to the public for the first time, while nearby stables have been redeveloped as a tea room, toilets and gallery for visitors.
