Old Timbers

Project: Old Timbers, Fordham

Client: Private Client

Contract Value: £60,000

Old Timbers is a Grade 2 listed timber frame hall house, dating back to the mid C15.

The extension to the house provides a new kitchen and dining/breakfast area and alterations were carried out to an existing garage to form an additional ground floor bedroom. The entrance was also remodelled. The extension is a timber framed building with an open vaulted pyramid roof, clad in hand made plain tiles.

We had to overcome the difficulty of designing the extension to link the old house with the 1960s built garage without detracting from the interest and value of the original building. A corner window was consciously introduced to take advantage of views overlooking a delightful garden and pond.
