Located in the centre of the London Borough of Enfield, this 1950s, 4 bed-room detached house was in need of renovation, after standing empty for two years. Our client bought the house with the view to making it a family home, with some specific adaptions to cater for the needs of their disabled daughter. It was important the floors were all on the same level, with lift access to the first floor. All rooms had to be wheelchair accessible and the rooms of sufficient size to manoeuvre a wheelchair.
Planning permission was granted in March 2017, and work commenced in March 2018. The scope of the work included a large two storey side extension and a rear single storey extension. On the ground-floor the additional accommodation provided a large kitchen/breakfast/dining area, with level access to the private rear garden, as well as a large bedroom for our clients’ daughter, with an adapted en-suite shower room and adjacent therapy room. The first-floor accommodation comprises, 6 bedrooms, with 4 en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. A lift provides wheelchair access from the ground to the first floor.
During the works the property was fully enveloped in a tented scaffolding to enable work to continue during the winter months, and included a completely new roof structure, heating and electrical systems. The project was completed in September 2018.
