Puckeridge House, built on the Wentworth Estate, was purchased by our client to supplement the other houses owned by them in its immediate proximity. The original house comprised five bedrooms with one bathroom en suite and one family bathroom, a living room which had been reduced in size to provide a study, a cloakroom and a kitchen/dining room. The overall effect was of a 1970’s build with little attention to quality.
The refurbishment was almost a total rebuild replacing doors, windows, ceilings, lighting, flooring, heating systems etc, adding a large glazed extension, swimming pool and bar-b-cue area. The gardens were also redesigned and landscaped. The original living room was reinstated. The bedrooms were increased from five to six including an attic bedroom all of which are en suite. A new formal dining room was included into the main body of the house. Meanwhile the glazed extension was designed to accommodate the new kitchen and breakfast bar alongside a family room opening up onto the terrace and the new swimming pool and bar-b-cue area.
The full refurbishment and extension of the house has provided a high quality home for the family.
