Ripley-Extension & Refurbishment

The brief was for a major refurbishment and to add an additional bedroom through a rear two-storey extension. The client also wanted to add another link from the kitchen to the reception rooms. The house is located within the green belt, so we had to be considerate about how much we added to the building.

A key element of the brief was to be sympathetic to the original features of the house, such as the grand staircase with domed ceiling, and to make them a point of emphasis. An example of this is where we will carefully remove striking double doorset from the existing bootroom and reinstall them into the entrance hall.

Planning permission was granted in Spring 2022, and construction is due to begin in the Summer of 2022.

We have engaged Upright on a number of occasions for extensive extension and remodelling projects at our property in Reigate. The most recent project comprised of a very large 2 story extension & remodelling project incorporating an annex for a family member. Upright have carried out similar projects for a number of our neighbours in the road & have certainly built a good reputation in this area.
