A barn-like extension clad in corrugated iron and timber has been added to a historic cottage to create this lateral 2,100-square-foot home in the English countryside of Cornwall.
The original two-story structure has been rebuilt and turned into a single-level abode, fitted with low-energy lighting and renewable energy features. Now, a ground-source heat pump generates hot water and home heating, which is supplemented by solar photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.
Housing four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a utility/plant room, the property's new extension juts out over the pond in the garden, which makes the addition seem as though it is floating on water. Its asymmetric pitched roof mirrors the roofline of the original house. A passageway with a glazed roof links the two spaces and provides access to a decked balcony.
Formerly an estate cottage to the nearby Lanhydrock Estate, this historic property known as Rosedale was in a poor state of repair before it was redesigned three years ago by owner Guy Stansfeld, founder of Guy Stansfeld Architects. Now, this beautifully renovated countryside retreat is on the market for $881,465 with Savills.
Located in Redmoor, a hamlet set on a 200-acre nature reserve known as Red Moor, the home sits on an 11-acre plot and features thick woodlands, as well as a tranquil, well-cultivated garden.
Rosedale is now being listed by Savills in Cornwall, UK. See the full listing here. All photography courtesy of Savills.
