The extension is designed with glass to the sides and with large aluminium sliding glass doors creating a great family living space that will make the most of the light. A wood burning stove will be at the centre of the new open plan area which will flow when used for entertainment, but with zoned areas for different activities when used by the family.

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.

A large orangery will be added to the current kitchen, with high ceilings and tall windows providing plenty of light. This luminous space will create a more relaxed informal living area for the family where they can cook, eat and relax with full views of the garden.
