It started life as a simple outbuilding project, but after numerous discussions with the client and the local authority, it grew to be a 5-bedroom new build home with its own street entrance.
Hamilton King had the exciting opportunity to come up with a creative design solution for our client’s large, yet difficult to maintain back garden. The client's original idea was to build a potential gym and spa outbuilding to increase the value of the original home.
Following conversations with the local authority of what could be permitted, the project quickly changed scope and evolved into building a separate new build home within a conservation area.
Hamilton King worked with the local authority to achieve consent for a home to be constructed on this generously sized plot.
We designed all internal and external aspects of this 5-bedroom family home and managed all aspects of the build process (from tenders to contract administration).
The end result is a generous 5-bedroom Victorian-style home, built to modern-day living standards.
One of the requirements for this project was to have the external facade match the neighbouring properties on Burlington Gardens. We carefully designed this newly built home to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the street, including in the build some period touches – most notably the bay stained-glass window which floods the hallway with light.
Internally, the open plan living kitchen was designed with modern-day family life in mind. The floor-to-ceiling glazed windows open up onto the garden inviting in plenty of light, making this house feel grand whilst being a relatively sized footprint.
