0557 Rear extension and dormer in South Wimbledon. Contemporary extension and rear dormer refurbishment.
This terraced property in this exceptionally quiet neighbourhood was purchased by a family of four. The back garden used to be home to a fox family who curiously looked at us during the measured survey, but left the garden towards the end of construction. The property has got unusually high ceilings and the existing loft space height is exceptional. We added a ground floor rear extension and completely opened up this part of the house to create a luxuriously large open space kitchen-dining-living area for our Clients. The front reception room has been transformed into a cosy TV area with a concealed WV storage. The first floor houses two bedrooms and a study and a family bathroom. The roof space was the biggest win in our view – it was already exceptionally tall, but thanks to a rear facing mansard dormer it was transformed into two bedrooms with an ensuite. Roof lights bring a generous amount of light into this lovely property. During the five months refurbishment, all windows were replaced and its original flowery features retained.
