Case Study


Open modern kitchen with open bi-fold doors

Our Summertown project was a great project where we helped source the property for an overseas investor. We then gained planning permission, extended and fully refurbished the property before selling it on.

This stunning Edwardian House in North Oxford, was purchased for us to develop by an overseas investor, and in just 5 months we transformed these two bedsits in North Oxford, into a wonderful, 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, double reception and huge kitchen extension, family home. We used nearly all local suppliers to develop and sell this wonderful house, including intotoKennington FlooringACH Flooring and Penny & Sinclair. We extended the property both on the ground floor as well as going into the loft, gaining an additional 582 square foot.

Although this property is situated on the north side of the road, by designing the ground floor in such a way that both the double reception room and the large kitchen, dining extension were double aspect rooms, the light simply flows through and makes each space feel bigger and more airy. We always pay special attention to the ergonomics of space, and the kitchen is designed for all the cooking and food preparation to be done within the twin islands and the full height units, while all the laundry and most of the storage is allocated to the upper and lower unit run. We feel it is really important to envisage living in a space, so each detail has been considered, down to ensuring plug sockets are available where they will be needed, to creating a lighting plan where the new resident will be able to enjoy different settings according to their mood.
