Extensive restoration and extension of an unlisted farmhouse,
including to create a new glazed link to the west wing,
with kitchen extension and to create additional bedrooms and bathrooms

Architect: Gerald Steer

This project consisted of a full restoration and extension of an unlisted farmhouse including the creation of a new glazed link to the west wing with kitchen extension, creating additional bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor.

In order to create a feeling of space and light a cleverly designed glazed linkway was constructed. The works were designed to meet modern day standards whilst being sensitive to the heritage listed building, incorporating traditional materials and detailing throughout.

The kitchen was extended to create a more open plan living space. High quality internal cabinetry was installed throughout to make the most of the storage space available and was kept traditionally detailed. 

General repairs were also carried out sensitively to the historic fabric of the building, including chimneys that were rebuilt in keeping with the period of the house. Restoration works were undertaken to the existing cellar to create wine storage space. In addition, other spaces within existing outbuildings were converted into a boot room and study area. 

“I really enjoyed the challenges of working on a project that developed from the initial concept into literally creating another floor level within the roof! I was very lucky to work with a highly skilled team of craftspeople of all trades and are very proud of the final result we created’’
