Huxley Cottage

Type: Domestic Project
Value: £150K
Status: Completed

Introduction

This semi-detached rural cottage in Huxley, Cheshire needed to be renovated and extended to provide a modern living accommodation for a local developer.

Challenge

As the property is located in the Green Belt, the degree to which the building could be altered was limited. The property is a semi-detached two-bedroom cottage with the bathroom located on the ground floor, while the rear outbuildings are linked with a shared pitched roof.

Solution

We developed and a double-storey side extension and single-storey rear lean-to roof. The extension provided much needed first floor accommodation providing three double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en-suite.

On the ground floor, the room arrangement provides a new entrance hall, relocated staircase, formal living room, open plan rear kitchen/dining room and family space. The rear lean-to roof provides volume to the space with plenty of natural light penetration to the rooms.

Conclusion

The extension complements the original building form while allowing the cottage to be converted into a modern property, highlighting the best of both its old charm and modern facilities.
