Gazing at the front of this beautiful Victorian family home it's hard to remember the old pebbledash render.
Having been seamlessly restored, it is now in fact difficult to tell that the majority of the front elevation and single gable had to be rebuilt.
Our in-house team worked painstakingly to ensure that the exterior restoration conserved the original Queen Anne style features. Each of the hand carved red brick motifs were carefully removed in small sections, catalogued and fully restored.
A stunning glass extension now hosts a fabulous open plan kitchen, dining and family space. Floor to ceiling glass doors and roof glazing ensure that the space is flooded with light.
And on warm days the garden becomes a further extension of the house by simply sliding the doors right back.
The original house manages to retain all of it's period beauty, yet is still harmonious with the contemporary decor, rear glass extension, high gloss kitchen and modern bathrooms.
Inside many original features have also undergone careful restoration, from the ornamental plasterwork and cornices, to the incredible stained glass entrance. The heavily textured, square tile wall paper delivers Victorian charm, with the pale, yet warm, colour scheme bringing it completely up to date.
The former cellar had limited use with it's size and restricted height, digging down by an extra metre has made way for a usable space.
Bespoke joinery is both stylish and practical, from the traditional library to the oak dressing room, each room has custom made display and storage solutions.
The upstairs has also been carefully re-configured. At the top of the house teenagers now have the perfect space to sleep, study and hang out with their friends, and this former bedroom is now a large master ensuite with an adjoining dressing room.
Now all it needs is dressing for Christmas - we really couldn't be more delighted with the end result.
