A farmhouse in Oxfordshire received a stunning renovation, which included the construction of a beautifully bespoke lean-to conservatory by Apropos.
The glass and aluminum lean-to conservatory was erected to the side of the property in order to house a beautiful, new, contemporary kitchen. The aim of the renovation was to bring new life to the rustic farmhouse, by combining a sympathetic renovation of the original property with the modern makeover provided by the lean-to conservatory.
In doing so, the lean-to conservatory generously increased the floor space of the property by utilising dead space to the side of the farmhouse. Prior to the construction of the lean-to conservatory, the dead space was cleared of all debris, including a small lean-to shelter. Once initial building work was completed the glass and aluminium lean-to conservatory was added, providing room for an elegant new kitchen.
As well as incorporating a new, modern kitchen, the lean-to conservatory boasts electric vents to aid air flow, and aluminium patio doors to allow access to the garden. The brickwork of the original outer wall has been left exposed, creating a gorgeous juxtapose between the old farmhouse and the new lean-to conservatory.
Despite its contemporary feel, the lean-to conservatory perfectly complements the farmhouse. The clean lines and simple features of the lean-to conservatory help accentuate the period feel of the original property itself.
The new lean-to conservatory allows the client to fully enjoy the surrounding countryside, with unrestricted views from the lean-to conservatory to enjoy even on the coldest and dullest of days.
Some homeowners may have chosen an orangery extension over a lean-to conservatory. With their sturdier appearances and more traditional looks, an orangery in this instance may have added better flow to the property. However, the simple fact remains – the resultant lean-to conservatory is gorgeous and allows the client to take in those beautiful countryside views.
Others may also have chosen a different use for the lean-to conservatory, instead of a kitchen. Some may have used the extra space as a dining room or a living room. No doubt, both uses would have suited this lean-to conservatory perfectly; however in choosing to house their kitchen in the lean-to conservatory, the client has made a bold statement about contemporary living. More and more homeowners are using bespoke, lean-to conservatories to house kitchens, and it makes perfect sense. The kitchen is the epicentre of most homes, and by housing it in a lean-to conservatory they are providing the most popular room in the property with a gorgeous backdrop for modern living.
