Project Description

Family-home renovation, Buckingham

This project enabled a couple to stay in the family home they loved but make the changes needed to accommodate their children’s growing families. The location and couple’s emotional attachment to the house meant that moving wasn’t an option. With our expertise, we were able to realise their dream of a house that could accommodate extended stays from all their children and grandchildren.

This is a very large substantial family home in Buckinghamshire. The couple that own the house had lived in it for over 30 years and brought up their children there. Now the children have families of their own the couple wanted to convert their home into a place where they could comfortably host their entire family.

Because this was a long term plan the house had become quite dated with any refurbishment work postponed until the major refurbishment and conversion. It meant that special attention was paid to the design and finish of the build to ensure it was contemporary and incorporated all the elements the owners had looked forward to for years.

HNB Ltd worked with the family to identify where more provision could be made for visiting families. We adapted the entire roof extending their living space into the loft to create a second floor for the property with additional bedrooms and a bathroom.

We dug down to create a beautiful polished concrete floor finish throughout the ground floor and converted the existing attached double garage into a self-contained annexe for guests and family members. We then built a new triple bay detached garage to the side of the house to accommodate the family’s vehicles.

To complete the project we completed a substantial amount of hard and soft landscaping to create a new garden and grounds scheme which works very well with the renovated house and new garage.

The entire property both inside and out now has a clean contemporary feel with polished concrete floors and modern finishes throughout.
