Norfolk has more than its fair share of waterside properties and this Grade II listed Granary enjoys a very splendid location, not only adjoining the Mill and mill pool but also looking out across the River Waveney to the marshes beyond.
The existing 19th century Granary building is clad in black stained timber with slender white aluminium windows and a clay pantile roof, typical of this area but possibly a little more ‘Suffolk’ in appearance. The challenge was to extend the house to provide much needed additional accommodation without compromising the very pleasing regular, simple form of the original building. This was a sensitive project in terms of planning approval as the site is within the Broads Authority area and is also designated a Conservation Area.
The scheme we created was a two-storey extension, complete with two small balconies at first floor projecting out alongside the millpond. This design enabled an opening out of lovely views to the surrounding countryside while maintaining the regularity and indeed solidity of the original pitched roof extension.
