Reivers Gate, Longhorsley

The clients wished to create additional space to the front of the house as the existing entrance was cramped, dark and unwelcoming. The solution was to create a fully glazed, oak framed extension to the front of the house with a covered porch to create additional shelter around the front door. The result is a sympathetic contemporary addition to the front of the house, maintaining the rural character of the property.

Client- “We contacted Carve Architecture to discuss some preliminary ideas we had for the front of our home. We wanted something that would be sympathetic and in-keeping with the house and the village. James, our Architect, gave us lots of advice as to the size and the overall effect we wished to achieve. We were very happy with the design, it was just what we had pictured when first thinking about it. James worked closely with the oak frame firm and also with our builder at each stage of the development.We live in a small village and on a main road, we have had people stop and ask about the porch because they like it so much and would like one similar. We are delighted with the result. Thank you to everyone at Carve, our porch is the talk of the area”
