Vicarage Road, Hampton Wick

A stunning transformation

From the street, Vicarage Road looks like a typical 1900’s end of terrace house. Passing through the front door reveals a tightly tapering site, with the building becoming increasingly narrow towards the rear. The existing house also suffered from extensive subsidence, due to a 1.5m change in level between the house and the adjacent factory.

During phase one the badly damaged front façade was completely removed, the existing side walls were underpinned and the front elevation rebuilt with new foundations. Care was taken to reuse the existing bricks, and the UPV windows were replaced with working hardwood sashes.

Luxury living that doesn’t compromise on space

The second phase saw a new two-storey extension constructed to the rear using the full width of the site.  This incorporated a kitchen on the ground floor and a new double bedroom and bathroom at the first floor.    A small courtyard was cleverly created by removing one of the external walls. This project made the most of a complicated space, giving a much-dilapidated house a new lease on life; existing Edwardian character was retained at the front whilst providing light and open living spaces to the rear.
