Extension and Alterations to Listed Property – Fornham All Saints, Bury St Edmunds
The existing property, a Grade II Listed 2 bedroom thatched cottage has been extended to the side to provide a new Master Bedroom with en-suite at first floor. On the ground floor the property has been extended to provide a new Family room accessed from the entrance hall and a Sun room to the rear of the cottage which opens out onto a sheltered courtyard area.
The style of the extension has been designed to be in-keeping with the original property. A rendered finish to the external walls and a clay pantiled roof compliments the existing thatch, with black painted timber bargeboards complete the look. The sloped ceilings of the first floor extend the cottage feel throughout the extension.
As part of the Listed Building consent, window details were provided to ensure the new windows were as in keeping to the original as possible. One of the new windows is set within a new dormer window which is in the original thatched part of the roof. This has been sympathetically constructed to match with the existing cottage.
