This old bungalow had a steeply pitched roof with a single storey flat roof to one side, and a flat roof dormer window to the other. Our clients wanted to extend and update the property.
Internally the property consisted of three bedrooms (two upstairs and one downstairs), kitchen, living/dining room, conservatory, bathroom, utility room and garage. Outside, the original materials were facing brickwork and tile hanging to the walls, with concrete interlocking roof tiles.
After some initial proposals, our final design for the exterior included timber boarding, painted render, roof lights, glazed gable and lanterns, to create a very contemporary looking home.
Internally, the downstairs of the house now includes a garage, utility room, WC, open plan kitchen/dining/living room, a study/bedroom and a living room. Upstairs is a master bedroom with en-suite, two further bedrooms and a bathroom which features a vaulted ceiling and roof lights.
When compared to the original ageing property, this house has been turned into a beautiful, long-term family home. It is also a stunning piece of architecture which is an asset to the surrounding area.
