Hill Wooton House

An architect designed (Michael Partridge Partnership) extension, conversion and refurbishment of servants quarters at Hill Wooton House, Hill Wooton.

The extension and conversion forms a new family room annexed to the large kitchen area forming a high specification space and ultra modern kitchen in a large Edwardian Manor originally built around 1905.

External Appearance
The extension is an infill build within a quadrangle area to the side rear of the main house. To deliver best use of space a group of small outbuildings have been demolished and the bricks recovered.

The extension was build of the recovered Cherry Orchard bricks with a code 5 lead roof with mopstick joints, rose decorative motifs and studded flashings.

The fenestration included a upvc lantern over with an Iroko multi leaf folding door to the rear.

Internal Layout and Finishes
The design delivered a large open dining area that is accessible from the kitchen and food preparation area. Adjacent to the dining area a compact snug area with built in plasma screen television has been constructed.
The floor finish is a four size pattern honed and filled mid beige travatine limestone tile. Centrally and directly beneath the overhead lantern, a mosaic depicting the four points of a compass was laid and orientated to align with magnetic north.  Beneath the tiling, electric powered under-floor heating was installed.
The kitchen units and appliances were supplied a fitted by Smallbone of Devises. Smallbone delivered a traditional hand painted design with ultra modern appliances incorporated, black granite worktops and Aga.

The fireplace, which formed the focal point of the project was designed by the client and built in reclaimed building materials with a dog grate within.

The extension extends to approximately 600 sq ft and was completed within the customers budget
