Bumble Bee Cottage, Woodmancote
Set in a tranquil rural lane in the village of Woodmancote near Chichester, the original Bumble Bee Cottage was an unremarkable post war bungalow designed perpendicular to the lane and running very deep into the site.
The client wanted the cottage totally redesigned to form a two storey character property in keeping with the charm of its surroundings and neighbours.
The new design had to make the most of the site and create large comfortable spaces. The brief required the design to include traditional cottage character in its detail.
The result is a spacious 4 bed family home along with a separate guest annex. The redesigned property sits beautifully on the site and the front elevation creates a perfect entrance in the mature front garden.
