Acremead Road, Wheatley
Private house extension, Wheatley, Oxford
We were asked to prepare planning application and building regulations drawings to extend a bungalow in Wheatley following a well-developed design brief. Our appraisal of the brief was that the intended extension didn’t take full advantage of the sloping site and extensive views across the valley. Following a little rework of the designs, the proposed extension makes the most of the view and there is more internal drama with the introduction of a split level living room. The end result will be a wonderful family home likely to attract a premium price compared with the neighbouring houses but for little more financial investment in the build project.
