This modest early 20th century cottage was in a poor state of repair when our clients purchased it. It is pretty and in a vernacular style with brick and tile hung elevations under a clay tile roof.
The new two-storey rear extension houses a master bedroom suite at first floor and a family kitchen and dining room on the ground floor.
The whole is designed to match the existing language and pallet of materials and uses a vanishing corner door and window solution to open up views to the garden and maximise light. Externally a scheme to create a flow of space between the garden and interior helps to break down the formality of inside and outside.
