Tardis-like cottage renovation
Building of Townscape Merit, Conservation area
This appears to be a very modest cottage, but following a 2-storey extension and extensive renovations, the interior of this Kingston home is certainly more spacious than could be imagined from looking at the outside. A change in levels from front to rear meant that the ground floor extension could have extra ceiling height and rooflights were introduced where possible, to bring as much natural light as possible into the space.
It is a source of amusement that all visitors express surprise when they enter the open plan living space: a genuine case of creating wow factor.
