Sunnyside, Downderry, south-east Cornwall
The old Sunnyside bungalow was built in the early
1900s and had reached a stage where economic refurbishment was no longer an option. Out clients wished to replace
the present building with a new energy efficient home that would take advantage of its special location. It is
to include an annexe.
The existing garage remained. The house was arranged to make best
use of the views with a terrace to the front. The master bedroom suite and living space are on the top floor
relating to the rear garden. The principal floor will relate to the front garden and communicate with the annexe
which is to comprise a living space with a bedroom and ensuite wet room. There is to be one other bedroom and a
study which may double as a fourth bedroom and these will share a bathroom and toilet.
Completed in 2014.
Sunnyside was shortlisted as a finalist at the LABC Building Awards
