What Houzz contributors are saying:
And – ta-da! – the winner, at number 1, is……this impressively converted Victorian semi, which looks dramatically different at the back compared to its street view (click on the link at the end of the story if you’d like to see more photos).Again, it’s a generously sized home – there are five bedrooms and four bathrooms – and the new extension, the external appearance of which architect Felix Milns of Zulufish compares to a rocket – boosts space further.
The new rear of the house has an exciting peaked design. “Like a rocket,” says Milns with a laugh. The house originally had the classic Victorian layout of one room at the front and one at the back on the ground floor and an outrigger extension that stretched about two-thirds across the rear of the property. “We extended right into the side return,” says Milns. “But first we knocked the back outrigger off the house. We demolished it completely. This was a big job!”
