The Old House is a prominent Grade 2 listed village house dating back to the 17th century. The property has undergone many alterations over time resulting in a confused and awkward layout. The kitchen was located on the far west of the house with a side door onto the entrance driveway so the main entrance and the principal reception rooms were little used.


Our brief included the complete refurbishment and updating of the property including re-roofing and re-rendering as well as providing additional accommodation. We proposed extending the house to the rear providing garaging, utility and boot rooms as well as a new large family kitchen in centre of the plan, thus restoring it as the ‘heart’ of the house.


The solution of providing contemporary, simple flat roofed glazed extensions to enlarge the area for the proposed kitchen (replacing a conservatory) and a link to the rear building, which was more traditionally designed, was welcomed by the Planning and Conservation Team at South Cambs District Council.


The adjacent Coach House formed Phase 1 of the project, so that once converted, this would provide accommodation for the family during the works to the main house.
