Penrith – Residential
Remodeling and Extension of a Bungalow
Initial Survey – Spring 2018; Completion – Spring 2020.
Our client wished to remodel their existing two-bedroomed detached house to add a further bedroom and create a new, lighter, airier kitchen/ dining area, with vaulted ceilings and a glazed screen giving view towards the Lake District fells. In addition, the existing front door was tucked away on a side elevation and the client was keen to make it more prominent and create a porch.
The scheme required the demolition of an existing attached garage, re-working of the external spaces and parking to give room for the extension that contained the kitchen/ diner, a larger entrance hall, external storage and a utility room. The existing kitchen was re-purposed as a new bedroom with the addition of an en-suite shower room and a large opening was created between the existing living room and new kitchen/diner to create a large, well-lit open plan living area.
The unique topography of the property allowed for the creation of a spacious terrace accessed by sliding/folding screens from the kitchen that gave tremendous views and allowed indoor/outdoor living.
