Hampshire Garden House
Renovating this country house for some dear clients who Emma has known and worked with over many years, celebrated the property’s history while updating it for modern living. Despite the restrictions of an older building, Emma used her considerable vision to bring back its heart, deciding to reconfigure the centre of the house. The front door was relocated, creating an entrance hall from the original dining room. The staircase was also repositioned, now housed in a purpose built brick extension to the back of the house. An ensuite bathroom was added, designed from lost space on an unused mezzanine in the adjacent games room. Bringing forward the kitchen from the dark rear of the house meant, with windows on both sides, it now enjoys stunning views across the pretty gardens and open countryside beyond.
“Emma Farquharson has undertaken complete refurbishment of our London house, including the kitchen design, and the rebuild of a country cottage for us in the past 6 years. She is a delight to work with, completely dedicated to every task until accomplished to the highest standard, and has excellent qualifications for all processes of building works, together with the ability to see the potential in a building and, in our case, completely transform our cottage into a perfect home. She is as good at the interior design as in the structural work, and the outcome has always been a happy one for us”.
