Kennerleigh, Devon


A challenging extension and refurbishment of a Grade II listed cob cottage in a Devon village.

The successful delivery of the project relied on thorough consultation with the local authorities conservation officer in order to secure planning permission and listed building consent for the project. The large two storey extension is connected to the original cottage with a delicate glazed link which creates a dramatic space between the two volumes where old meets new.

The new extension provides a new master bedroom and ensuite at first floor with a feature staircase in the glazed link. At ground floor a new kitchen and dining room has been created with patio doors leading to the garden. The entire house was also sensitively refurbished both inside and out to complete the transformation.
