Constructed in 1831 Grade B1 listed Martello House has been fully restored with modern additions
With this being an 1830's listed property, we had to adhere to certain historical building regulations to retain the original character of this stunning home. The kitchen was the only room we could make changes to. Two rooms were knocked into one, the original kitchen and staff area, to open up the entire space.
The kitchen is south facing so we wanted to make the most of this area, to make it as light as possible and to subtly merge the indoors and outdoors. We were not permitted to increase the windows so we created a window cum doorway to the sunny terrace area. These sliding sash windows actually open right up so you can walk outside, which is an interesting feature.
To the other side of the room are sliding doors. This is where the original back door had been but these contemporary style doors add a modern twist.
