Listed Cottage, South Downs National Park

Listed Cottage, South Downs National Park

Project Description:

Located in the heart of the South Downs National Park, Listed Cottage is a Grade II Listed Building. Dating back to 1773 with brick and stone elevations the Cottage is typical of many houses to be found in the SDNP. In the past the house has been extended to the rear with a conservatory added in 1988.

Planning and listed building consent was granted to create a new extension replacing the conservatory. The new extension is larger and has been moved towards the North of the rear elevation; it will house the dining room which opens off the kitchen. The design incorporates lower eaves and ridge than the host dwelling, and a hipped roof to diminish the visual impact on the host dwelling when viewed from the North or South. The form and materials of the extension are in sympathy with the original brick and stone cottage where the existing 1988 conservatory contrasts in white painted timber.

The project is currently under construction.
