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.

This Edwardian house was repaired and transformed from basement to loft following an unsympathetic refurbishment in the 1970’s. The interior style was themed on the 1960’s and carried through from the furniture into the very fabric of the house. Tsiantar Architects’ attention to detail was applied not only to the general design, but down to the bespoke stained glass and ‘one off’ fire places.
Take a proper look at Holmdale which appears under Past Projects.
