Set within the Dartmoor National Park boundary, the original stone built house, much maligned as a result of early 20th century alterations, was comprehensively restored to its former state and substantially extended in a sympathetic manner, demonstrating appropriate consistency with local building traditions.

In order ensure the principal extension nestled appropriately into the site it was necessary to physically quarry granite on the site, the derived material being fashioned by site masons into lintel units, window cills and a spiral stair flight for incorporation into the construction works.

The newly created internal spaces can be distinguished from the renovated original ones by the judicious introduction of natural daylight from roof level, clean uncluttered lines and refined purpose-made joinery, including numerous pieces of furniture also designed by the Practice.

Light, space and materials combine to create timeless interior spaces of palpable conviviality.
