Redevelopment of Detached home – Yorkshire
Bowman Riley was commissioned by the new owners of this private house to provide architectural assistance to substantially redevelop their detached family home located within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
We provided feasibility studies, planning, construction and on-site assistance to extend and modernise the 100-year-old five bedroom house.
The property was extended to include a new two storey curved main entrance extension with helical oak feature staircase and skylight double height space.
The work also comprised a new single storey kitchen extension and extensive structural works to improve the internal arrangement of the building including modern open plan kitchen and dining area.
All the period features were retained including fireplaces, skylight to landing and joinery to openings. Traditional materials were used throughout the building envelope to match the existing building including natural stone walling with sawn stone door and window surrounds and new sliding sash windows throughout.
Sustainable heating was installed by means of wood pellet boiler, which will be compatible with a possible future ground source heat system
