Complete conversion and refurbishment of a Grade II listed large late Georgian Villa, formerly used as offices, into a single dwelling with integral garaging and swimming pool

Arts and Crafts luxury family home

New eco-friendly dwelling

green belt, Ilkley

This challenging project comprised the demolition of an existing dwelling & lodge within the green belt to be replaced by a unique, low-carbon house of approximately 450sqm in floor area, being the first significant Code 5 dwelling for a private client. The Code for Sustainable Homes required an integrated approach to achieve a high level of sustainability.  

"With a listed property that dated back to the 1400’s it was essential that our extension/modernisation was in keeping and yet we wanted to have all the benefits of modern living such as technology and open spaces.  SoS achieved this mix in the design and also managed a difficult build process, as with any old property there were many unexpected issues to deal with along the way."
