This charming terraced cottage in the picturesque village of Castle Combe underwent a meticulous renovation and rear extension that transformed the living spaces while preserving its historic charm.
The rear of the house underwent significant alterations, including the addition of a first-floor rear gable extension. This extension provided ample head height for a third bedroom, ensuring that the home could accommodate growing families without compromising its character.
A single-storey rear extension was also added, significantly expanding the original cottage kitchen and creating a dedicated dining space. The open-plan layout connects the kitchen, dining area, and living room, fostering a sense of warmth and togetherness.
The extension opens out onto a spacious patio via French doors, creating a indoor-outdoor connection that invites natural light and fresh air into the home. The rooflight further enhances the interior’s brightness and airiness.
The rear elevation of the house was finished in a uniform buff render, complemented by a Bath stone plinth. This cohesive design unified the extension with the existing structure, maintaining the cottage’s architectural integrity while enhancing its functionality and liveability.
This renovation project exemplifies our commitment to preserving the heritage of historic structures while creating modern and functional living spaces. We believe that renovations should enhance the character of a home, not overshadow it.
