Little Pennatillies, extension and refurbishment

Our clients had bought the property because of it’s splendid location and pleasant garden, realising that it had a large number of defects and incomplete items, but intend to take advantage of the potential.  Their intention was to use the existing three bedrooms for each of their three children, and add on a master bedroom and further fifth bedroom.  The clients wished to improve the living space with an extension towards the garden, a larger kitchen.  The works also involved relocating the staircase, providing a downstairs cloakroom, and also a garage.

Our concept was to build two-storey extension on the end of the original house, allowing for an enlargement of the living room and providing a master bedroom with en-suite facilities at first floor level.

The hallway would be created on the northern side to accommodate a new staircase linking the ground and first floor levels, and providing for a spacious landing and access to both the kitchen and living room off the ground floor hall.

The kitchen will extend beyond it’s present position, taking into it’s space that occupied by the bathroom, would be refitted with the culinary end nearer to the living room, probably re-siting the Aga, and possibly having an access direct on to the garden.

The slackly pitched roof on the single storey extension to the west of the house would be removed and the two-storey structure extended up to the boundary, including building on top of the existing walling to create a garden room, workshop and utility at ground floor level, with a further bedroom at first floor level.

To re-organise the site arrangements to the north and east of the house to retain vehicles clear of the immediate surroundings of the house, to possibly build a Cart House or garage.

The property has since be sold (sales particulars).
