Our clients were ‘down-sizing’ and purchased this attractive terraced cottage overlooking a village green.
Our brief was to turn the dwelling into a modern/forever home whilst maintaining the character of the cottage.
The staircase was relocated from the rear to the front of the cottage to provide more space for a new kitchen. A seven metre long oak timber beam creates a full-width opening from the kitchen to the new zinc-roofed extension. A full-width rooflight provides light and ventilation into the middle of the plan. A circular oak post supports the roof and narrow-profile sliding glazed doors provide views of the rear garden. The ground floor level now accommodates a new utility room, pantry and WC. At the first floor level a new dressing room and ensuite were provided to the master bedroom. A new sedum-roofed oak-framed double garage was constructed to the rear.
