This was a rather neglected brick built house dating from the 1950. The most important starting point with this property was to remove the wildly patterned carpets and plaster over the artex. A blank canvas was soon created. New fireplaces were installed and dresser style cabinets fitted to each side of the chimney breasts.
Each room was carefully decoration and new carpets and curtains were fitted. A lovely bathroom was designed and installed also a handmade kitchen with dramatic marble worktops. Plans were drawn up for an extension which would create a larger living room another bedroom and a study. Once planning permission was achieved I set about arranging a programme for the different tradesmen. The extension was soon well under way. Having completed the building side of things the new rooms were decorated and carpeted, superb curtains were installed and the rooms were now ready. The new section made a tremendous difference to the house it became much brighter and really enjoyable to use. Before long I drew up plans for a conservatory.
This was to be a large room with under floor heating. I worked with the builders to make sure it was perfect. When it was complete it was a lovely space not getting to hot in the summertime as it was on the north side of the property but light and warm. Its atmosphere was helped by the bevelled glass French doors that lead into it and an attractive pagoda alongside. The property was now complete and made a fabulous family home. Its appearance had been incredibly improved with a new tile hung and wisteria clad front elevation.
