Project Description

 Rose Cottage

Own Project


Time Scale

6 months


Steeple Lane, St Ives


The Rose Cottage development saw us design and manage the complete refurbishment of a derelict 350-year old cottage. We wanted to create a highly contemporary, technologically advanced family home behind a traditional exterior.

New build features included installation of under floor heating, feature apex windows, conservatory with sunken hot-tub with large glass balustrade balcony over, in addition to the total landscaping of the terraced gardens.

Our desire to want to create a unique living space with every conceivable modern living feature meant every element of the build and development process had to be undertaken to the highest possible standards.

Work Involved

In addition to retaining the original structure, we undertook a series of new build extensions to greatly expand and enhance the original building. Incorporating a number of technically advanced features such as detailed wiring for a complete audio-visual multi-room entertainment system served by a central hub. Electrically operated bespoke blinds and Lutron mood lighting throughout.
