40 ABOVE TOWN, DARTMOUTH
40 Above Town, Dartmouth
Mr & Mrs Reid
A rear extension built into the steeply sloping hillside behind an existing detached Victorian house with associated major internal alterations.
The extension allowed us to turn the house upside down with living spaces on the first floor and bedrooms on the ground. At the front this gives the new lounge fantastic views over the Dart through two new bay windows. While at the rear, direct access to the garden was created from a kitchen / dining area.
The topography of the site coupled with the access (a set of steps off one of Dartmouth’s very narrow streets) presented construction challenges that were overcome by working with the contractor to produce practical solutions.
