We have been commissioned to undertake a full refurbishment of an existing in parts 16th Century property in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire to preserve the long term viability of the house for the current owners and to ensure that the property meets the needs of modern family life.
The alterations to the property have been carefully considered and respect the original dwelling by avoiding major works in the Jacobean elements of the house, rather by altering previous poorly considered elements and bringing a more co-herent approach to the property.
We submitted a Pre-application enquiry to the council due to the fact the property is located within a Conservation Area, to ensure that the proposals are in keeping with the character of the property. Planning Permission was secured very quickly in the summer of 2018 and we are currently working through the detail design of the scheme.
The proposed scheme is two fold, a new contemporary single storey rear extension provides a large open plan space housing new kitchen, dining and living areas for the family, which are connected to the garden. The second element is the refurbishment of the existing house to create new living and bedroom accommodation.
The new extension is highly glazed to be light and spacious and to increase light into the ground floor of the main house, it uses Oak timber detailing in the joinery and we have feature metallic clad walls externally.
The project is due to commence on site in 2019.
