The Glen

Preston
Extension | Remodel
100 m²
£150,000

Situated in an area of Open Countryside. The detached property was built in 1930-1949. The property is set back from the main roads and is surrounded by tall trees and shrubbery. The property can be seen from the main roads and overlooks the open countryside. The property has a large garden, driveway and parking along with a detached garage. The property has particularly poor energy efficiency having been built out of a clinker blockwork ‘double leaf’ wall with an unfilled cavity between the two.


The proposed brief includes the remodeling and possible extension to the home. Remodeling the front of the house, removing the old curved bay windows in favour of a more modern look, a slight extension on (potentially one side only) to enlarge the master bedroom on the ground floor and knock through to the unused front door hallway to further enlarge the bedroom.


Due care and considerations have been given to the extending and redevelopment of the property and we have consulted national and local policy frameworks to create a proposal that both redevelops the existing property and incorporates contemporary features which are sensitive to the existing building and provides the client with the ability to use their home in a practical manner.

We produced a number of layouts and designs both in 2D and 3D to convey the principles of the design and give our clients a clear understanding of how we had approached this sensitive site. We produced the detailed planning application and were aware that previous applications for an extension to the rear had only been approved at appeal.


Our proposals and additional supporting documents showcased the sympathetic nature of the proposals and keeping open dialogue with the planning officer we have achieved approval at the 1st attempt.
