Loft Conversion, Wakehurst Road SW11, Wandsworth
The client wanted to make the most of their loft space by adding 2 large bedrooms onto the property. We recommended a Mansard loft conversion to create comfortable, spacious rooms with plenty of headroom. We also added a rear addition to the loft, with timber sliding sash windows in the rear Mansard and in the rear addition.
A new staircase was fitted to match the existing one and ensure that the loft conversion felt like just another set of rooms rather than a later addition to the house. All of the skirting, handrails, and spindles were also matched to the existing fixtures. The conversion took around 9 weeks to complete, including sign off and surveyor approval.
Velux windows in the front elevation let in plenty of light while ensuring that both loft conversion bedrooms were private. This also helped with planning consent, as the view from the public road remained largely unchanged.
Party wall agreements were required for this work, and some structural changes were made to the party wall – all materials used were matched to the existing wall using second hand London stocks. As well as adding more private space to the home, this loft conversion has added considerable value onto the house for when the client come to sell.
