Grade 2 listed pub conversion to a house. Originally built early in the 1800s and converted to a public house during the 19th Century.
The client wanted a house with an optimum provision of rooms, ideally three bedrooms. The layout suggested this would be relatively easy to achieve but we had to investigate the ‘story’ of the house to support our suggestion for the installation of a new stair to the conservation officer. The stairs were more like ladders than the stairs we see and use today.
These images show the living and dining space. A new stair positioned at the end of the space provides access to the bedrooms at the front of the house. The original stair in the unit to the rear was retained to provide more private access to the master bedroom.
The open plan approach was taken to avoid providing cramped and gloomy spaces, an approach followed through to the kitchen, which can be seen through the opening in the separating wall. The opening allows physical and visual connection from kitchen to dining and living room whilst still providing separation.
The upper floor contains the master bedroom, with ensuite and its own access stair, and two further bedrooms, with shared shower room.
