This 1950s / 60s property was almost original when our client took ownership in 2018. The client, having raised a family now wanted something for herself to enjoy so we were appointed to help create her dream home. The brief was to create a home which would incorporate our clients artistic style as well as providing a home studio for painting and artwork.
The front of the property is completely transformed with feature glazing, a zinc roof porch incorporating a chain link downpipe. The front door is reclaimed from an architectural salvage yard and has been restored with bespoke windows matched to its design sitting either side.
As you walk through the front door you are greeted by a large open space and a stunning bespoke curved oak staircase. The view beyond through the open plan kitchen and living space gives a glimpse of our client’s other favourite pastime, the garden.
To the rear of the property a new extension has been added clad with vertical black timber and a zinc roof which helps to make a statement and visually separates the original part of the house from the extension.
The majority of the first floor is untouched other than introducing a vaulted ceiling to the stairwell as well as adding an ensuite.
It was a pleasure working with this client and being able to bring her artistic style into this beautiful home.
