Bereco Windows Feature In 2013 Homebuilding & Renovating Awards
The award winning project has been featured in the April issue of Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine, with a dedicated case study depicting the couple’s journey from purchasing the plot to moving in.
Back in 2006 the couple bought the tired 1970’s bungalow, an extension of what had once been an old cottage- the original part of the building was not far from derelict. The plot was situated in their perfect location, an impressive two acre woodland plot in Berkshire. The site was very overgrown but the couple could see the potential it held given a lot of hard work and vision. Existing planning permission was already in place to extend and create a much larger 400m2 dormer bungalow.
The family of 5 lived camped out in original bungalow for a total of 5 long years, whilst saving and carefully planning every aspect of the build – right down to the very last detail. Started September 2011 and completed in May 2013, the remodel was almost 2 years in the process but the stunning result was well worth the wait and the couple are delighted with what they have managed to achieve.
The property has been created based on the skeleton of the old bungalow and has been extended upwards with a state of the art, light weight timber structure. The interior has been beautifully finished to a very high standard with a completely new layout throughout.
The Burgesses have removed most of the original internal walls to create a large, bright, open living space. As part of part of maximising the natural light in the property the couple wanted to significantly increase the volume of glazing in the property.
The house is designed to bring the outdoors in with completely bespoke angled feature window windows and French doors designed to open out onto the vast patio. The windows have created increased the amount of natural night throughout the property and frame the delightful view of the spanning gardens and surrounding woodland.
