Extending a home is no easy feat, especially when it comes to adding to those that have a past life. Thanks to the experts at Rococo, this beautiful home has had its floor plan extended, whilst managing to retain the original character of the building.

The new orangery is a stunning place for the occupants to relax and entertain, complete with dining, lounging, cooking and relaxing space. By mimicking the Georgian bar design of the existing home into the new windows, the extension blends in perfectly with the property. Given that the home has access to a wonderfully landscaped garden, it comes as no surprise that the occupants would want to take full advantage of their view all year round.

In this Ideabook you will see class and elegance combine to create a project that will leave you wanting to complete the same renovation on your own home. Take a look…

An unassuming exterior

The exterior façade of the home is truly spectacular and is reminiscent of the homes we love and appreciate for their history. 

The creeping plants, wooden bench, intricate white French windows and the chimney complete the package of this view, leaving us wondering what lies behind these doors…

Wow! What a wonderful complementary new extension to the rear of the property. Now the house has been afforded a light-filled and spacious living and dining area to enjoy all year round.

The benefit of conservatories and orangeries is their functionality; they can be used during any season and at any time of day. In the summer months, you can imagine the long-winded lunches or dinners that would take place and in winter, how pleasurable Christmas dinner would be as the snow gently falls outside.

An expansive 8-seat table has been placed in the centre of the room, underneath the pitch of the glass roof. As the main focal point of the space, we are automatically aware that the occupants must be keen entertainers.

The largely white colour palette helps to radiate the available light, giving us insight into the volume of the room.

The kitchen

This image forms a scene of a quintessentially English kitchen;  from the motifs on the tiled wall to the floral pull down blind that covers the rustic window. Even the smaller details, like the butter holder and teapot, remind us of summers spent in the countryside.

The monochromatic colour palette is both dramatic and quaint, with the sleek black worktop working in total contrast against the biscuit-coloured cabinetry and white walls.

The sunroom

Last but definitely not least, we end our tour inside an absolutely wonderful sunroom. Here, the occupants can read a book, enjoy a glass of wine or even lay with the delicate English sun on their faces.

We absolutely love the gentle polka dot pattern on the grey bench cushions, which is cheery yet keeps the outward focus on the spectacular view outside.
