HOUSE IN MARTOCK

SOMERSET

Built in the 1780s, this Grade II listed Georgian house in Martock, Somerset, had been neglected for many years and required substantial refurbishment.  The goal was to create a modern living environment that was sympathetic to the original fabric of the house.

 

Listed Building Consent was required to create an opening between the kitchen /  breakfast room and adjacent family room.  This created a more open space with increased natural light.  The kitchen fitout included an oak floor, bespoke fitted cupboards and granite worktops.  A local mason was employed to restore the impressive Somerset Ham Stone fire surround.  The mix of modern appliances and services with traditional materials make this space both functional and a pleasure to be in.

 

Listed building consent was also required for works to the attic.  This involved replacing a floor, adding three conservation skylights and forming partition walls covered in lime plaster.
