About Us

Town & Country Conservatories( UK) traces its roots to the early 1980’s in Norfolk, England, a county revered for its heritage of fine carpentry. Town & Country grew to become one of England’s premier conservatory design-builders with projects completed throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.

In 1994 James Licata founded the U.S. operation of Town & Country Conservatories and eventually became the sole owner of Town & Country.  With over 30 years of experience, Town & Country UK and U.S. accumulated an award winning portfolio of projects.  Hardwood conservatories are still manufactured in the UK ensuring the tradition of fine craftsmanship and state of the art design.  Aluminum conservatories, which emulate the style and detail of Town & Country’s hardwood buildings are designed and fabricated in North America.

Town & Country Conservatories provides property owners with glass conservatories, orangeries, pool and garden houses, English skylights, and more. Our experience encompasses 1200 projects. The company prizes its reputation for design and manufacturing excellence, as well as its tradition of close personal service.

Our mission is to bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home and stay true to the authentic style and sensibility of the original structure or grounds.
