Shorts Farm, Chelmsford - The Brief

Our client purchased this detached property with a view to restore this former Georgian Farmhouse to its former glory. The property was sympathetically renovated throughout. The exterior brickwork of the property was refurbished with an acid wash and new pointing. The Roof had all new Roof tiles reinstated to complete the external works. The old Georgian bar windows were replaced with sympathetic period-styled modern glazing with simple white frames and stunning matt black hardware. The single-storey rear extension gave our clients a huge open plan, family living space, complete with traditional shaker Kitchen and large island. The addition of two sets of bifold doors are a total triumph filling the space with light and making the most of the beautiful garden views. Total renovation throughout coupled with bold interior design choices in each of the four bathrooms create a stunning family home. The complete enhancement was achieved with both a single-storey and double-storey extension.
