The stylish restoration and extension of Amherst Place has been an exceptional project to be involved with. We were appointed as lead planning and technical designers and we’ve been working alongside other contractors, including Infinity Group.
The property had widespread timber decay and distortion so a decision was made to replace the internal fabric with a more robust, long lasting structure. Our brief consisted of the following:
- Forming a fully habitable basement
- Replacing and replicating all original timber windows
- Internal re-design throughout the main house
- Demolishing extensions and forming new single storey extensions sympathetic to the existing south wing.
- External upgrades across the property
Proposed floor layouts for the house evolved from structural considerations and are now newly designed within the original four walls. The accommodation consists of ensuite bedrooms and a generous master suite all above the formal areas. Below there is a reception bar, music room, snug and TV lounge. Leading naturally through to the new extensions, the kitchen, dining area, utility/boot room and gymnasium have been designed to flow towards the west facing lawn.
The high spec finishes throughout create a contemporary version of the original Georgian style, blending historic charm and modern comfort. Coupled with the physical restoration, this substantial property will be lifted up to state-of-the-art standards.
A truly fantastic effort from the project team!
The transformation is nearly complete, and when it’s all done we’ll post further pictures of the end result. For now, here’s some sneak peek inspiration:
