The house will be constructed in traditional materials indigenous to the Conservation Area it sits in, such as red wire cut bricks for the walls, natural grey blue slate for the roof and buff sandstone for the feature walls and details such as cills and pillars.
The traditional steep slate roof, the feature portico and double height entrance and the stylized bay window are modern interpretations of 'Victorian' ethos as are the high quality natural materials that will be used.
The house will have 5 bedrooms (4 en-suite) and a family bathroom, a large open plan kitchen/garden room and utility, lounge, snug, integral double garage and a gym. All designed for modern family living with a bit of luxury!

Tom and Sam were on hand to talk to students considering architecture as a possible career option. They were able to give them an insight into what we do here at Tsiantar and they also helped explain the different options available at university. Hopefully we've inspired some budding new architects!

The house was completely stripped back to the bare masonry and re-organised to provide significant accommodation. There were substantial extensions added to form garages with an office suite above, a large swimming pool and gym viewed from the dining room, and a large garden room and terrace. The entrance was re-configured to house a sweeping central staircase with wrap around galleried landing and a dome over. The swimming pool structure was added to the side of the house and the rear wall of the dining room replaced with a large plate glass window to give a full view over the pool. The gym is similarly positioned to view out to the garden over the pool behind a large window. The family living area was opened up into the garden room and houses a large kitchen, dining and sitting area and a play room arranged on different levels all to give views over the garden. Externally, the house was given a new identity by introducing cream render and buff sandstone feature windows. Brickwork was used to accentuate the chimneys and strong elements such as the two storey timber windows flanking the entrance giving the house a character. The building was already multi faceted and this was enforced with the octagonal garden room and the angled position of the garages which all add to the idiosyncrasy of the property.
