Greenheyes, Dean Oak Lane, Reigate, Surrey
This modern alteration, extension and renovation of a detached family home in the Surrey countryside maximises the stunning views to the front and rear, utilising curtain wall glazing, sliding and scissor doors and a clever porte-cochere link addition to an existing garage. This success is mirrored by the retention of the property’s privacy using slatted timber louvers.
The Architects design involved gutting the interiors of the original 1958 property to provide a spacious open plan living, kitchen and dining space orientated to views down the elongated rear garden and overlooking the surrounding countryside farmlands.
The first floor accommodation is knitted into the design by voids over the hall and dining area, whilst the stairwell and landing area detailing is light and airy.
The extension exterior, which has been reclad with Iroko reclaimed buff coloured brickwork and zinc, sits seamlessly alongside the original build.
