The principal accommodation of this wonderful grade II* listed building sits on the road frontage with the ancillary build, such as kitchens and scullery running back into the site. The frontage rooms are large and packed full of heritage features, whilst in contrast, those to the rear were only ever built to support the everyday workings of the household and were never meant to be seen.
The way families live has evolved since the 18th century when this house was originally constructed and whilst at one time the frontage rooms would have been adequate as places to ‘receive’ and entertain, for the contemporary owner, a large kitchen/dining/garden room is now the de rigueur.
Consent was negotiated to replace a redundant timber framed lean to, to reconfigure the service accommodation and to add a large rear extension. The new build to the side now houses all of the ancillary requirements whilst the service wing has been reconfigured and combined with a rear extension to provide a light, spacious and contemporary space, worthy of this prestigious dwelling.
Phase two of this project will see the conversion of one of the curtilage listed barns into habitable accommodation.
