The house did not have any work done for two generations and we had to cope with crumbling plaster and uneven internal walls.
We added a side extension for an enlarged kitchen dining room, with Crittal doors to the back, a water based underfloor heating and a sound system. Two front rooms have been joined up and a new timber flooring installed on the whole ground floor.
The first floor features now two single, good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and a large master bedroom.
All windows were replaced to double glazed sash windows, which helped to restore the character of this building. The pre-existing pebble dash front facade was taken back to the brick, restored and painted.
The full width rear dormer extension houses a new guest suite with a shower room and storage under the eaves.
Several original features have been preserved, including a missing piece in the front reception room cornice which according to the previous owners fell down during a Blitz attack during WW2.
Completed in Autumn 2015.
