Built in 1975, Ellengowan was a dated bungalow located in the West Dean conservation area. Situated on a substantial plot, our clients bought the property with a full renovation in mind in order to create their ideal family home.

The existing building footprint was retained, with a small extension proposed to form the new entrance porch. A new first floor was created over the majority of the ground floor, with a single storey element retained to become a vaulted living room.

Internally, extensive remodeling allowed for a new floor plan to accommodate a modern family lifestyle, with a large kitchen dining family space at the center of the home. A large utility room, guest bedroom and en-suite, snug and separate living room were also created on the ground floor. At first floor 4 new bedrooms, an en-suite and family bathroom were formed, with a gallery landing overlooking the double height entrance and dining hall.
