When asked if we could build a Granny Annexe for an elderly gentleman in Warwickshire we were thrilled to help. A bespoke Granny Annexe provided an ideal solution for the family – allowing him to maintain independence while at the same time benefiting from having family nearby to provide assistance if needed and to allow the family to stay close together.
The plot of land was set in a village location and needed to remain in keeping with the local area. A stable block at the end of garden added an extra dimension to the build with the Granny Annexe being built just in front, so the new building was designed to sympathetically work with these surroundings.
One of the key features in terms of design was to create an Annexe with a light open-plan feeling, while still maintaining a cosiness for the winter months. To facilitate this the Annexe was built with an airy pitched roof allowing for an open plan kitchen living space with expansive 4 metre wide glazing looking onto the garden, French doors helped provide easy access.
A bespoke kitchen was added with modern shaker style units with brushed stainless steel handles.
To complete the build a generous tiled shower room with electric shower, glass shower screen and WC were also installed.
