This renovation had to be completed with a real sensitivity to the appearance of the rest of the property to ensure that the extension and repairs did not stand out as a new build.
Fire had damaged one side of this building in the 1950s, and the previous repairs that had been carried out were not in keeping with the rest of the building. We therefore re-built this side of the property and added a solid oak extension.
The work involved was extensive and included underpinning the entire house, and replacing the brick plinths and sole plates using traditional lime mortar. Structural work was completed using green oak, and this included the replacement of the stud walls.
Bespoke windows with traditional leaded lights were created to match the originals, and the roof was re-roofed using the existing peg tiles, ensuring the exterior worked in harmony with the existing features.
The extension itself provided the property owners with an extra galleried bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a dressing room, all finished to a very high standard.
