Countryside Family Home
DETACHED FAMILY HOME IN THE COUNTRYSIDE
A beautiful, detached family home in the countryside. The family had lived in the house for a long time without any major refurbishments taking place. As time passed, the family decided to invest in some refurbishments, one of which was making better use of their conservatory.
CONSERVATORY AND KITCHEN
Although breathtaking, this home had elements that were no longer fit for purpose, which the family felt could benefit from refurbishing. The first was the conservatory; although it looked lovely, it was not functional enough for the family. With the great British weather, they found it was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, so they rarely got any use out of it. The second was the kitchen, which was too small relative to the size of the house.
We demolished the conservatory along with the side walls of the kitchen and built a brand new, open-plan kitchen dining area to maximise and modernise the space. This space is perfect for entertaining and has quickly become the heart of the home.
We also built a pantry, Utility Room, storage area, and a secondary entrance from the driveway with shoe and coat storage.
WORKS WITHIN THE HOUSE
We also carried out some work within the house. This included general refurbishments and modernising. Unlike the kitchen refurbishment, the rest of the house didn’t require any structural changes, so the alterations were very straightforward.
Whilst we were working on other areas of the project, the client also asked us to incorporate the detached annexe. The existing state of the annexe meant it was unusable; there was no heating and poor insulation. We worked on refurbishing this building, giving the family another area to include in their home.
Our client stated, “I feel that we’ve brought the house into the 21st century – finally, which is something that was long overdue.”
