Roughmoor cottage was original build as a farm workers dwelling in the late 18th Century. A small two bedroom cottage packed with stacks of character.
The owners loved the property but wanted to feel more connected to the beautiful gardens. However, the configuration of the house left the garden rather cut-off and inaccessible due to small windows. This also made the north side of the house dark.
The additional works included adding a full width “garden room” which is glass on two sides allowing unhindered views of the garden. This along with roof skylights allows light to flood into the house, even on cloudy days and has opened up the northwards aspect.
Additional works included the addition of a downstairs toilet along with re-orienting the kitchen whilst adding a completely new set of units and appliances. The hallway was re-configured and the entire downstairs was re-plastered.
The result is a much more usable downstairs space which is well connected to the garden, especially as the glass doors open completely to all the “garden into the house”. A very good balance of old and new working in perfect harmony.
If you are planning a “magical make-over” for your property and would like to discuss any aspect, then please give us a call, we’d be happy to help.
