Light-filled extension with garden views

Reserve house, in keeping with many late 19th century houses has the bedrooms and living areas at the front of the home, the kitchen at the rear and the toilet and laundry in an outhouse. With the advent of sewers, toilets and bathrooms were often incorporated into the rear of the house. While improving the quality of life, these additions compromised the flow of the building.

The rooms at the front of Reserve house were retained to preserve the character of the period. The rear of the house was demolished and rebuilt. The extension includes a larger bathroom with separate toilet and kitchen with integrated laundry. A new dining area now opens via glazed doors to the north-facing garden.

The light-filled extension with its garden view is now the owners' favourite spot.
