Thorpe, Woolacombe

Project:THORPE, BAY VIEW ROAD, WOOLACOMBE Client: Mr C Jones Contract Sum: Undisclosed Remodelling of Existing Dwelling Situated inside the Conservation Area, Heritage Coast, and Area of outstanding Natural Beauty, the property was a circa early 1900's chalet bungalow in a prominent coastal position enjoying stunning beach views but in need of modernisation. The client's brief was to improve the living accommodation by creating an open plan living environment, total internal remodelling and extending the rear to create an additional bedroom and 'surf' lobby. The front elevation was dramatically changed with new larger dormers and panoramic doors to increase natural light within the property. The choice of colours and materials were key elements to achieving the desired 'Beach Living' feel of the property. The contract also included extensive landscaping and the creation of the new garage in keeping with those of adjacent properties.
