An elegant contemporary residence has been fashioned from this former stables by Stephen Fletcher Architects 

Stephen Fletcher Architects were recently commissioned to completely remodel the interiors of this 1930s thatched former stables block. The 1980s conversion to a private residence had been carried-out with little imagination and resulted in endless low-ceilinged rooms leading off each other, and huge areas of wasted boarded-off roof space. The completed project features a double-height central Living Room which provides a much-needed focus to the property, and affords access to a suite of four guest bedrooms and bathrooms (via a secret mirrored door) at ground floor level, and a fabulous new Master Suite located in formerly unused roof space. This was made possible by forming new windows in the gable-ends. The usable floor area of the house has thus increased by around a third without extending the original structure. All areas have been upgraded with oak flooring and architraves, folding/sliding doors, and structural glass.
