Works to Old Cottage in Lyndhurst received planning consent in January 2012.

The scheme includes the removal of a modern flat roof extension that is in poor condition and creation of a replacement ground floor extension that will provide an extended kitchen / dining space for the clients with better access to the mature gardens. Beneath the extended kitchen floor there will be a new wine cellar accessed through the kitchen.

Other works include the removal of an existing single garage which is to be replaced with one outbuilding that will incorporate a double garage,  workshop and study.

Works have now begun on the detailed design stage.
