Cascade Avenue

This stunning Arts and Crafts Cottage had bountiful charm and character but was in need of modernisation. A dated rear extension was demolished and the client wanted to add a larger extension, however planning stipulated that the original rear window must be retained. In order to achieve this Charlie and her team added a frameless glass extension that not only increased the size of the property, but left the original windows intact.

With the increased footprint the ground floor was remodeled to include a WC and through access from the hall to the kitchen. The house was completely rewired and replumbed, bringing it up to standard before the two bathrooms were refurbished.

Finally the property was decorated throughout including sanding and refinishing the original floorboards on the first floor and carefully restoring the original features. The painstaking attention to detail used on the project saw it shortlisted for the LABC Building Excellence Awards.
