About the Project
The property is a Georgian house, located in Acacia Road, within the St John’s Wood Conservation Area.
It is constructed in London stock brickwork and believed to be the farm manager’s house. It is therefore likely to be one of the oldest in the street.
The house, which is well set back from the road is, in fact, semi-detached, the adjoining house having been constructed in the 20th century.
To the rear of the property, there is a garden wall, which runs the length of the property.
Between the house and the wall there is a small tapering strip of land which is used as a paved patio.
The proposals relate to infilling part of this strip with a single storey extension, serving as a breakfast area for the kitchen.
It also provides the opportunity for a direct link from the Kitchen to the main formal reception room, which is highly desirable for large family occasions.
Two small paved patios are retained, each side of the extension, which will be planted and lit discreetly, giving added dimension to the spaces.
It should also be noted that the main garden area is to the south of the house at the front.
The design of the extension is of a conservatory nature, with glazed end walls and a large fixed rooflight.
