Renovation and extension of 19th Century stone lodge house

An attractive C-listed 19th Century stone lodge house which had, due to its restricted internal scale, lain uninhabited for a number of years. The new owners wanted to breathe new life into the property and make it an enjoyable and usable home. After extensive negotiations with Planning the current scheme emerged.

The majority of the external fabric was retained and refurbished and the inside of the house re-configured to create one large open plan living space with a bank of rooflights bringing light into the centre of the plan. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are accommodated in two timber-clad extensions to the South and East. The South extension follows the fall of the site to create extra accommodation at lower ground floor, while keeping the height of the extension below the eaves of the original house.

Internally materials are kept simple with an oak stair, oak flooring, glazed doors and flush fitted cupboards. A horizontal slot window in the kitchen, a sheltered timber deck between the two extensions and full height windows at both ground and lower ground foster the connection between the house and its garden grounds.
