Carrisbrooke - Traditional double storey side extension 

The property of ‘Carrisbrooke’ is located in an historic fishing village on the Lizard peninsula. The original house was built in 1908 in traditional style with rendered walls, timber sash windows and natural slate covered roof.   To the west of the property was a dilapidated structure which is believed to have historically been used for mending fishing nets and equipment. Internally within the property there is a kitchen, dining area, lounge, rear study and utility at ground level with two double bedrooms, master bedroom with ensuite and bathroom at first floor.  

The current owners purchased the property in 2017 and renovated the main house to a high standard using traditional materials and techniques.  The existing structure to the west required attention and the owners wanted to re-design it to meet their needs.  This would include for a side entrance to form a Bootroom with ground floor shower room and WC to the rear.  At first floor level the extension incorporates a dressing area and storage accessed from the Master Bedroom.  The design of the extension and first floor vaulted roof allows for the creation of interesting interior spaces all naturally lit from the windows, rooflight and French doors.   


The construction incorporates environmentally friendly and natural quality materials that match the main house as well as high levels of insulation to minimise the use of heating. 


Externally the roof is covered with natural slate with a conservation rooflight to provide natural light into the heart of the side extension.  The walls are smooth rendered with traditional painted timber windows and doors to match the existing house.


Completion – March 2022
