Beacon Croft conservation

Beacon Croft is a Victorian villa located adjacent Beacon park and within the conservation area, close to the cathedral. The dwelling had a single skin garage to the frontage (70s) which was used for storage and not an effective use of space for the family. We replaced the garage with a 1.5 storey extension forming a mezzanine, small office, kitchen and lounge area, along with WC and utility. It was a challenge since the extension was located in an irregular space, along the main road frontage but we think it lends itself well to the frontage and presence of this beautiful villa.
