Verity & Beverley Ltd
A new country house set in the outer parkland area of a Grade I Listed landscape. The property is a replacement dwelling, with the new house providing significantly more living accommodation, as well as an improvement in the quality of detailing and usage of materials. It is built in a traditional style utilising bespoke stonework for window surrounds, plinths and quoins from a local Cotswold quarry.

Our clients approached Ben Cunliffe Architects to create a high quality holiday let property which would eventually be suitable for their retirement home at a later date. Located on the outskirts of Windermere, this stunning Pattinson Arts and Crafts house was set in magnificent but very overgrown gardens but the potential to bring the house back to its former glory was evident the moment we arrived. We focused on a programme of internal refurbishment, fully updating the interior and making small changes to the existing layouts. This involved relocating to the kitchen to be with the dining and living spaces to the south side of the property, capitalising on the views across the gardens and making the most of the natural light. A new two storey extension was added to replace the former attached garage offering ground and first floor luxury bedroom suites; plus a second extension to provide a new double garage with annex space above. The extensions were designed to be sympathetic in form and mass to the original house, but using natural slate facings to differentiate the new additions from the white-finished render of the original building. The whole building was subject to a programme of general upgrades to the mechanical and electrical installations, and general upgrades to the insulation levels bringing the house up to modern day standards were also undertaken. Externally, the wide terraces that wrap around the property and the steps leading into the magnificent garden were restored and re-flagged providing the most wonderful outdoor entertaining space.

This hardwood orangery perfectly accompanies the existing footprint of the building and the timber pilaster posts and heavy mouldings reflect the original stonework and ornate features of the exquisite property.
