Groombridge Road, E9
5-storey Victorian terraced house
Rear extension, basement, loft, refurbishment and garden work
Sean & Stephen Ltd
With a rapidly expanding young family, our clients needed to think big. This huge project involved gutting the entire house, rebuilding and extending it up, down and back to create a stunning home twice its original size.
We dug out the existing mini-basement to fit a large family room and separate utility, and extended the ground floor to the rear, creating enough space for a grand kitchen (by @vevesdesign) and dining area. You can either take the stairs or the slide down to the family room!
The house’s style is a mix of reinstated Victorian features – high skirting, cornices, column radiators, tiling, sash windows – and contemporary high-spec finishes, including steel windows and doors, high-quality wood flooring and exposed brick walls.
Our joiner designed the beautiful wood panelling for the hallway cloakroom and the open wardrobes between the master bedroom and its en-suite. This enviable bathroom has a spray-painted roll-top bath, crittal-style shower enclosure and stylish enamel ‘bucket sink’.
The loft was converted to accommodate a study and the rest of the house was refurbed to an extremely high standard. Our favourite landscape gardener – @david_bracher – worked with us to design and create a gorgeous garden and complete the fabulous transformation.
Our client has kept a brilliant Insta diary of the project’s progress – @newwavehouseproject
The house has also generated a lot of outside interest: it was on the visiting list for Open House London 2019 and featured in Metro and Time Out; and made the cover of Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms magazine.
“We worked with Get Turner from the very outset of our project and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. From start to finish Get Turner were incredibly professional and friendly to deal with, both on site and in the office. They dealt expertly with project delays and changes to the programme, and were always totally transparent in their dealings with us. Mark and Get Turner take so much pride in the work they do, and we were blown away by the finished product they delivered.”
