Townhouse restoration & refurbishment


Pocklington, East Yorkshire

The transformation of this relatively unaltered Georgian Townhouse into a modern family home was featured on George Clarke’s Old House New Home (Channel 4). The owners worked closely with Pearce Bottomley Architects to breath new life into the property which had stood untouched for 60 years.

Pearce Bottomley’s involvement in the project has carried through from inception to completion; producing the scheme design, obtaining planning consent, preparing the working drawings and administering the contract on site.

The previous layout split the house in two, with access from the front to the back of the house only possible by passing through bedrooms. By inserting a Jack and Jill bathroom and a walk-through-wardrobe, each of the front rooms now has access to the rear of the first floor.

Downstairs we extended the main living space into the former outhouses across a back alley way. The alley is still evident in the finished building, demarcated by a glazed strip at the back wall of the house and with formerly external wall surfaces retained as internal brickwork.

The front of the house was restored to its full Georgian grandeur and the original cellar steps were opened back up allowing the space to become usable once more.

Externally we moved vehicular access away from the house to allow the garden to come right up to the kitchen windows and reinstated the railings that would have originally completed the street elevation.
