Transformed Edwardian house

When I first saw this home, the exterior was unattractive and the internal layout totally impractical.

The house was originally two separate properties that needed blending seamlessly together to maximise the fabulous sea view at the front and the views overlooking mature trees at the rear.

Having decided to move the staircase closer to the entrance, the rest of the remodelling instantly fell into place.

On the second floor, a new master suite boasts a delightful Juliet balcony plus a large bathroom – all with a great outlook.

The exterior was rendered, painted white and the bay windows were clad with larch, resulting in a home that’s striking and contemporary, yet sympathetic to its Edwardian past.
