Hunters Hill – Lingfield


Update and re-order the internal space of this character period cottage to provide the family with an open plan kitchen/diner, a reworked entrance hall/staircase and update the living room and study area.


This renovation build took a slight twist when it was selected to appear on the Channel 4 TV programme, George Clarke’s Old House New Home. Timelines for this project were extremely tight due to the production team scheduling.  The staircase was completely removed and turned, the wall dividing the kitchen was removed, an opening for bi-fold doors was created and doors fitted and the property was decorated throughout.  For more information on how this build was managed as part of the Channel 4 programme click here.


The property now had a spacious entrance hall leading to the newly created kitchen/dining area with bi-fold doors opening out onto the garden.  The kitchen island placed where the dividing wall once was, provides a social and workable space in the kitchen.  The inclusion of an under window seating area within the kitchen also doubles up as storage so this new kitchen, making great use of the space.  Neutral colours throughout compliment the original beams of the property and provide an airy and light feel.

“Recently finished a large double-story extension and full refurbishment throughout the existing property and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Upright. From the start we received a comprehensive, detailed and easy to understand quote, then a fully professional service. Even with the challenges of COVID and material shortages Upright managed to bring in the project on-time and on budget. Great work all round!”
