Our Response
The design encompasses the restoration of the entire listed home, retaining the frontage and restoring and repairing any listed features. The existing home was redesigned and reconfigured to accommodate a drawing room, library, study and bathroom, entrance hall, pantry, boot-room and utility. A single-storey extension, subordinate to the primary residence, embodies a minimalistic and modern design aesthetic intended to compliment the existing architectural style, and houses a new open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The first floor has been transformed to feature a new master bedroom with an en-suite and dressing area, a guest bedroom with a main bathroom, and a laundry room. The coach house has been strategically designed to provide additional bedrooms with direct access to the main residence. Adjacent to the house, an outbuilding, positioned perpendicular to the main structure, incorporates ancillary accommodations, including a gym and a potting shed. Externally, the project created an entrance courtyard and a patio area with a fire pit, enhancing the overall functionality and aesthetics of the property.
