Alderley Edge

Refurbishment alterations and extensions at Beechcroft Road Alerley Edge Cheshire for MH. Stainton Homes.

The site is located in one of the most sought after village locations in Cheshire.

The brief

was to renovate the existing property and produce a high quality contemporary house of individual style and market appeal.

The challenge

Addressing the limitations of the existing site and property which included adjacent buildings in close proximity, restricted access and drive space, split level site, little or no garden space, a tired and uninspiring house.

The solution

Raising the roof to provide a new bedroom level. Creating a large garage as required by the target market and using the roof as external living space.

Installing a vehicle turn around turn table in the driveway.

Providing a new fa├žade to the house utilising large areas of glazing to maximise views and light into the interiors.

Using traditional materials complimentary to the locality and contemporary materials in simple juxtaposition.

The result

A house with extensive and high quality living spaces of great individuality and character.
