LARCH TREE COTTAGE

Client : Harry Henniker and Elaine Abbot
Location : West Linton
Value : Undisclosed
Completion Date : Late 2012

Larchtree Cottage in West Linton is a modest traditional property close to the centre of the village. This project which was completed in 2013 included a comprehensive internal refurbishment of the cottage and the replacement of existing outbuildings with a modern extension.
The timber clad extension sits alongside the gable of the cottage and extends into the garden to the front replacing old sheds and utility space. Within the extension there is a shower room, utility space, kitchen and a dinings space with direct access to the garden.
The refurbished building is serviced from a new wood pellet boiler located in an existing garage nearer the entrance into the plot.
The simple idea with the project was to promote as much contact between inside and outside, especially considering the qualities of the garden space and long views to southern hills beyond the village.
