Work has started on site for a scheme to extend and remodel a Grade II listed cottage in the centre of Chichester.
The property on Westgate was purchased last year. During the last 12 months Pullen & Wells Architects have been involved in the restoration and renovation of the existing cottage. Phase two of the project has now started on site, comprising a ground floor link extension to accommodate a new garden room, utility room and guest bedroom with ensuite shower room.
The house, originally built in 1720, is a hidden gem tucked away in historical Westgate. The existing building is set end on to the street and there are documents with accounts to the building’s original purpose being a brewhouse and stable yard.
Martin Coree, Project Architect, gained planning approval and listed building consent in April and the scheme is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
Alterations and extensions to listed buildings require much thought and sensitivity to allow historic buildings to breath new life and work for their new purpose today. This is all required whilst being respectful and mindful of the history and aesthetic of the important building.
