Our client had amazing vision when she purchased a historic terraced cottage in the village of Romiley, Stockport. From the outside, it looks like a quaint terraced cottage in an old Cheshire village.

But step inside and she has created a spectacular open plan ground floor extension with an architecturally exquisite modern vaulted ceiling, complete with glass wall, allowing the light to flood into the entire kitchen diner.

From humble beginnings, this spectacular transformation once had a traditional ground floor layout of reception, kitchen and living room. Removing the walls between the rooms and adding an imaginative rear extension has entirely transformed the ground floor. The open plan kitchen diner dominates, leading into the living space which is partially secluded to create a further haven of tranquillity.

The large kitchen island serves not only as a preparation space but a place to sit and relax with a coffee in the morning and perfect for entertaining friends in the evening. The kitchen island features an inbuilt Iroko chopping board, solid oak drawer boxes, a large larder cupboard with spice racks, under mounted vegetable sink, wine cabinet and white quartz work surface, with seating for four.

The simplicity of this modern shaker kitchen blends wonderfully with the architecture of the contemporary kitchen extension design. The cabinets, painted in naturally calming ‘sea and sky’ tones, complement the natural materials used throughout the cottage.

The formal dining table, situated in front of the glass wall and accented with a beautiful modern chandelier, transports you right into the heart of the cottage garden.
