Reigate-Wrap Around Extension

The brief was to replace the existing single storey structure and conservatory with a two-storey extension to the side and a rear single storey extension within the same footprint. The client wanted to create a separate living space for the children, plus increase the size of their kitchen and include a dining space also. Upstairs, they wanted to create a master suite with dressing space and an en-suite. The house is located within the green belt, so we had to be considerate about how much we added to the building.

We designed the layout to allow for a direct sight line from the front door through the kitchen to the garden. The kitchen has been set out to create a useful entertaining space, where you can speak and interact with guests whilst prepping in the sink and island. A “dirty” entrance has been added to the side to allow for muddy dogs and kids to come in without extensive cleaning.

We hired Upright as a contractor to build a rear extension to allow for an open plan kitchen/dining room. We changed the internal reconfiguration of the house which included adding an additional snug to the living room, creating the perfect family environment.  Along with the open plan kitchen/dining room we added additional utility room next to it. I couldn’t recommend the Upright Property Group more, the services they offer from architectural to the build phase is second to none.
