Our team worked carefully and sensitively with the
existing building and through expert communications with the Local Planning Authority Conservation officer managed to retain the best of the listed fabric whilst make suitable adaptions which included larger
reception rooms and entertaining spaces along with additional bedrooms and a master suite with dressing and bathroom areas looking out to a secluded landscaped garden.
Church Street, Ampthill is an extension and alteration to an existing Grade 2* Listed Building. The building was in part retail and part residential use when the Benchmark team first visited and the challenge from our client was to return the building to residential use, extend to the rear and create a timeless and exceptional quality family home with 5 bedrooms.
The resulting design is a successful balance of heritage restoration and enhancements along with modern living and larger family and entertaining spaces all at the heart of a Georgian Market Town.
