Planning Granted for Victorian Property Transformation

Planning Granted for Victorian Property Transformation

Clear Architects have received planning consent to update a Victorian property in Loughton, Essex. Set in a stunning position overlooking Epping Forest, the existing manor house has been poorly extended and the owners wish to completely modernise it.

The clients (who currently live in London) approached Clear Architects because of their local prowess, to reconfigure the house and ancillary accommodation to provide a modern family home for themselves and their 3 young children.

The new design will provide a magnificent home and entertaining space that takes its ethos from the original Victorian architecture, but with cutting-edge contemporary additions that will enhance this home for a new generation.

The generous proportions of this contemporary design adds enormous light to the internal spaces, with an improved layout and natural flow. A new underground pavilion will house the swimming pool, with a distinctive design that is at one with the landscape and takes full advantage of the stunning aspect.

A new annex, which will replace the former stable block, will complete the transformation.

This is a very exciting project, with a design influenced by both period characteristics and some unusual architectural details to create a unique modern home.
