Furzelings a detached mid twentieth century bungalow on the edge of the Rame Peninsula ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ located in an elevated position looking over the village of Cawsand to Cawsand Bay.


The owners brief for the project was to modernise the property with the addition of a ground floor Kitchen/Diner to take advantage of the main view to the sea and provide a new first floor to accommodate new master bedroom suite.


The solution was a high vaulted ceilinged timber framed sun room on masonry plinth wall providing welcome vertical height to contrast with the lower ceilings of the existing bungalow the large glazing allowing light to flood in and providing views to open countryside and the coast.


At the first floor level a new dimension was added to the house with master bedroom commanding the same views with master bathroom knitted into the complex geometry of the roof form.


The new media cupboard, wardrobes, work station, fire surround and bathrooms were all designed as bespoke items to meet the owners requirements.


To finish the project, the existing gardens were newly landscaped with summer house and terraces to make the most of the views.




We write to thank you on completion of the works at Furzelings for a superb job.


This project has gone well and in very large measure, this has been due to your involvement.


From our first meeting you have been clear and practical in your advice, you created an inspired design that really works and made very sound recommendations as to builders who were outstanding.


You have always been very prompt and willing to discuss our plans and constant enquiries - often with great patience!


You attended regularly and most effectively to the completion of this significant project which, to all intents and purposes, came in on time and on budget.


We are most grateful to you Peter for helping us to create such a lovely home. It has been a pleasure to work with you and we would be pleased to do so again.


Please do not hesitate to mention our names as a reference, should the need ever arise.


With Best Regards,

John Anderson and Helen Anderson
