Major House Improvements in Teddington, London
One of our major turning points arose when we were awarded this very prestigious project in the affluent and highly sought after location in Teddington.
The sheer enormity of this double fronted three storey Victorian property set back behind a gated wall was already something of such beauty and we were given the task of adding a modern twist to our client's home whilst still retaining some of the original characteristics and features.
The layout of the property prior to the commencement of the project comprised of three flats, one on each level and whilst our client resided on the top floor during the entire project, our team of builders completely transformed the remaining ground floor and first floor of the property as follows;
Newly constructed rear house extension spanning an area of approximately 100sqm complete with the installation of three meter high sliding doors along the entire width of the extension which lead out to the patio floor and landscaped garden. Additional windows to the sides of the extension ensure the living space is never lacking natural light. The phenomenal floor space accommodates an open plan kitchen, dining and living area and a traditional Japanese tea room which leads out to a Japanese garden. Bespoke cupboards have been installed to complement the whole area. Two coffered ceilings and marble flooring add to the unique look of this modern dwelling.
Utility room - As well as typically housing the boiler, water tank and washing appliances, we had ample room to install a complete kitchen, storage cupboards and a shower pod.
Reception room - Fully refurbished and revitalised to a very traditional outlook.
Study room - A spacious room with ample storage ideally suited for our client's needs.
The hallway - There is a feeling of grandeur as soon as you walk into the property with the high ceilings and pendant lights as well as the marble flooring. Bespoke cupboards installed for the cloak room area and we also have two rest rooms finished to the highest standards.
Master bedroom overlooking the rear garden as well as a terraced section decked on the roof of the extension. The bedroom also has bespoke cupboards as well as a his and hers en-suite including a Jacuzzi bath tub and separate shower.
The guest bedroom was split into three segments; bedroom, dressing room and bathroom, classically designed with a freestanding bath tub as well as a shower cubicle.
Whilst minimal work was undertaken on the second floor, we refurbished the entire stairway landing as well renewing the bathroom.
Other areas of work include;
- New wiring & plumbing
- Wet underfloor heating in the extension and hallway
- Electric underfloor heating in all the rest rooms and bathrooms
- New architraves, skirting, alcoves and dado rails
- Electric blinds installed for each of the 6 sections of the sliding doors
- Construction of a chimney in the extension with three recesses to accommodate a wall mounted fireplace, a large television and window opening
- Installation of a projector screen
- Free standing surround sound speakers and LED lighting strips complement the coffer ceiling
- Decorating throughout including wallpaper on feature walls
- External lighting in the front and rear garden
- Installation of CCTV
- Construction of a bespoke porch roof
- Purpose built brick barbeque
It has been an absolute honour and privilege to have worked in complete harmony with our client, Yuka Willcocks whose vision in design and floor plan has been impeccable.
We wish the family many happy memories in their magnificent home.
