This beautiful family home in the Bedfordshire countryside was once a hunting lodge for King Henry VIII. A pre-Tudor building is often quite dark inside so the addition of a conservatory has created a special room to enjoy the sunshine and the landscaped gardens.
This fully glazed extension was designed to complement the orangery which we built on another face of the property. These twin extensions complement each other and transform the way the house is used. The angled corners and subtle Tudor style windows work well with the existing features.
The new addition is heavily used by the family as it provides a light-filled sitting area. It is a perfect room to watch over the children playing in the garden or to enjoy story time in the sunshine.

Inspiration for a large classic conservatory in Other with brick flooring, a standard ceiling, no fireplace and red floors.
An open house lot is like a blank canvas. When Mathew first visited the wooded lot where this home would ultimately be built, the landscape spoke to him clearly. Standing with the homeowner, it took Mathew only twenty minutes to produce an initial color sketch that captured his vision - a long, circular driveway and a home with many gables set at a picturesque angle that complemented the contours of the lot perfectly.
The interior was designed using a modern mix of architectural styles – a dash of craftsman combined with some colonial elements – to create a sophisticated yet truly comfortable home that would never look or feel ostentatious.
Features include a bright, open study off the entry. This office space is flanked on two sides by walls of expansive windows and provides a view out to the driveway and the woods beyond. There is also a contemporary, two-story great room with a see-through fireplace. This space is the heart of the home and provides a gracious transition, through two sets of double French doors, to a four-season porch located in the landscape of the rear yard.
This home offers the best in modern amenities and design sensibilities while still maintaining an approachable sense of warmth and ease.
