This Grade II Listed house in a Conservation Area underwent a major refurbishment of all five story’s with extensions (mostly underground) increasing the internal gross area from 700 m2 to 1400 m2. The subterranean works to a depth of 9 meters under the garden involved major engineering and waterproofing works to provide swimming pool, gymnasium, changing rooms, lift and ancillary areas. Originally arranged as three flats, the project required several planning permissions two of which were won on appeal successfully adding an enhanced top floor and a further extension at the lower levels to compliment the extensions for which permission had already been granted. In giving his decision the Planning Inspector wrote: “…the proposed alterations would, on balance, preserve both the architectural and historic interest of the Listed Building and character and appearance of the Conservation Area. Consequently they would not conflict with UDP Polices…”.

This is an excellent example of what can be achieved in terms of adding value to a Listed Building in a location where space is at a premium.
