after a long preparation period, we have finally started site works on this 5-storey townhouse mimicking the neighbouring property we completed around five years ago. the former garage to the front will be replaced by a sizeable utility room with a separate entrance from the front drive which is also connected to the open plan kitchen and dining room. a guest toilet and boiler room is located underneath the external stairs, with a modern open tread staircase leading to the upper hallway. a new study will form part of the side extension on the upper floor with access from the through lounge next to the main entrance hall. the upper floors will be renovated, windows upgraded and insulated where necessary whilst the building will be fitted with a modern heating system. a small balcony on top of the new flat roof structure at ground floor level will enable views over the sizeable rear garden. the project is projected to be completed end of 2020.
