A contemporary rear extension to an original Arts and Crafts house.

There is a heartfelt charm about old houses but they can pose difficulties when accommodating modern family life.

This house had beautiful details with the original part of the house being quite intact featuring beautiful timberwork, leadlight windows and staircase. By adding a modern ‘box’ to the rear the 1919 home is  ready for a modern family without sacrificing the original. The owners delight in having ‘the best of both worlds’ – a modern, light, efficient living and dining area, modern laundry, ensuite and walk- in-robe as well as cosy original attic bedrooms and sitting rooms in the original part of the house.
