St David’s Cottage
The project at St David’s involved the complete restoration of the Grade 2 listed cottage, located in the Test Valley Village of Longstock. Originally occupied by two sisters, St David's had been split into two separate homes, with internal doors providing access between the two.
The works to the cottage comprised of a layout reconfiguration to rectify the works undertaken when it was used as two dwellings. A single and two storey extension were also constructed to form additional living space at ground floor, and a bedroom at first floor, with a detached garage and garden store created in the garden. Extensive landscaping has helped ground the cottage in its surroundings.
The result is a lovely period cottage, with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 reception rooms that has been sensitively extended and restored to accommodate modern living whilst retaining its charm.
