Our proposals for alteration and extension to this grade II listed house have been granted planning and listed building consent and work has started on site. Located in the Malmesbury Conservation area, the 3 storey house was built in the 1790s and has a number of later additions at the rear. The new works will improve the internal circulation in the main house, increase the usable floor area and improve the thermal performance of the windows and roof.
At the rear the existing jumble of lean-tos and outbuildings will be replaced by an extension containing a new entrance, kitchen and dining area, connecting the house to the garden beyond, The extension is made up of a cluster of pitched roofs that will reflect the scale and form of the agricultural sheds they replace and follow the rising topography of the land . A rooflight above the stair will wash the existing rear wall of the house with light and offer views from the top of the stairs across the garden.
