Oak Framed House (Stone & Oak Extension)
The stone and oak extensions to the existing house in the village of Pillsgate are now complete with the owners thoroughly enjoying their new space.
The project added another 5 rooms to an established residence surrounded by the beautiful estate grounds of Burghley House.
The main room consists of a large oak frame with vaulted ceilings, this room will become the hub of the house for the family as it not only accommodates the kitchen and a full size 8 seater table and chairs, the large room was designed to allow a third function, the “day room” which includes soft seating allowing you to relax and enjoy the natural light and warmth that the open space has created.
The bi-fold doors that are incorporated into the design are manufactured here to very specific details and lead the UK bi-fold industry in specification and performance.
As the summer approaches, these will be folded back to reveal the beautiful gardens and with the internal and external flooring levels being the same, the sunken running track gives the appearance of the floor continuing from the internal room out onto the York stone terrace. The other 5 rooms that lead off from the main room include a substantial hallway that leads to a fully fitted utility room, a fully fitted wine and pantry and lastly a WC. This section was stone built including a one off Italian stone floor, oak internal and external doors and a very original York Stone roof.
We also landscaped the gardens using original York flagstones to create several terraced areas, stone retainer & bedding walls through out, oak external posts and gates and byre-facing their existing brick garage with oak boarding and oak garage doors we were able to tie the old external space with the newly built extensions.
We think the project has been a great success and I know that the clients are over the moon with the end result.
