Beautiful Edwardian House by Haine & Co.
Haine & Co. have handed back to their client this 7 bedroom detached Edwardian house in Wimbledon complete with an extensive two storey contemporary extension incorporating a luxury en-suite bathroom plus a 1000sqft open plan living/kitchen/family room.
The client purchased the house despite misgivings about the main reception rooms and kitchen being poorly lit by natural light.
The southern end of the existing house had previously been remodelled in the 1970’s and 1980’s resulting in poorly connecting and dark family rooms. This was dealt with by demolishing all non-original spaces to the south end of the house and replacing them with a contemporary two storey structure reflecting the existing rear elevation and footprint, the vertical and pitched elements clad in dark grey zinc with huge ground floor glazed sliding panels flooding the enormous family room with light.
The entire side and end walls of the original house were demolished at ground level to open up the centre of the house to natural light, requiring considerable structural alterations.
