Riverside, Instow

Riverside is a handsome Victorian house on the Quay at Instow that we were entrusted to design and transform into a comfortable family home to suit modern living.

Period features including the external timber shutters, windows and internal staircases and joinery have all been restored. At the same time a replacement extension was added to the ground floor at the back to create an enlarged kitchen / family room. The interior decor has a subtle, stripped back feel to allow the essential character of the house to come through.

The top floor attic space was converted into a master bedroom suite, complete with freestanding bath and new dormer windows to make the most of the fabulous views over the Torridge Estuary. The view is everything, so to celebrate that we also added a balcony accessed from the first floor drawing room.

we provided full architectural and project management services and are delighted, as our clients are, at the resulting spacious and inviting residence.
