Addington, Chartham Park
An existing cottage situated on the grounds of Chartham Park golf course, which was developed into a stunning, luxury timber framed dwelling. Existing feature walls remained as part of the scheme, allowing the build to be transformed under Permitted Development.
Due to planning restrictions the build required handmade bricks to be used, that required close programme management due to the extreme lead in period for manufacture. Again as part of the planning requirements, the roof was required to appear split in two sections, where a valley gutter was utilised to separate the two, both finished in a trendy grey slate tile.
Part of the superstructure was formed in an Oak frame, with exposed beams present in the living space of the kitchen.
The mechanical design for the property adopted a sustainable approach with a heat recovery system, external air source heat pump with underfloor heating being the properties main heating source, with no radiators included within the scheme.
Additionally, the property also had solar photovoltaics panels installed on the roof of both the main property as well as the roof creating a very efficient and renewable energy source system.
The centre piece of the property was designed around a light and spacious living space and kitchen with a feature timber staircase and glazed balustrades. Along with the living space, the downstairs master bedroom, were both equipped with stylish bi-folding doors to the gardens of the property.
