Constructed in the 1830’s as part of a terrace, the property has mostly retained its features from the time at which it was constructed. the front of the building retained its Regency character, with an original decorated fanlight over the door and wrought iron balcony and light well railings. The house is now Grade II listed.

CDA overhauled the house from top to bottom, making the house fit for modern living. We paid careful attention to the surviving Georgian details in the house, refurbishing and repairing many original decorative features. Years of paint were carefully striped back from cornices, skirting boards and mouldings to reveal long lost hidden details. Blocked up fireplaces were reinstated and dressed with reclaimed Regency fire surrounds.

To maximise the floor space we reconfigured and extended a two storey rear extension, adding an extra bedroom, a snug, and a rear terrace at piano noble level. These rooms will give the house more flexibility to adapt to the changing needs of its occupiers over time.
