The Red House is an attractive 1930’s property situated in the riverside village of Goring-on-Thames which lies within the Chilterns AONB.
It sits within a large plot despite the fact that its grounds were sub-divided historically, and when we were approached it was in need of extensive renovation.
A new property had been built on the site of a former tennis court and our proposals included the reconfiguration and extension of The Red House, refocussing its outlook towards its substantial rear garden and away from the neighbouring property.
Internal alterations improved arrangements at ground, first and second floors, and the extension provided a new living room, a master bedroom suite and a guest bedroom. Mechanical and electrical services were replaced throughout and an oak-clad outbuilding was designed to house the paraphernalia of modern family life!
The extension includes traditional gable roofs, low eaves and materials which complement the original design whilst the northern elevation hints at a more contemporary interior with the use of Crittal-style doors.
The Red House is typical of the kind of renovation project we enjoy - it incorporates features both new and old and fuses them sympathetically to bring about a cohesive whole.
