Croft Drive West

Hard to believe now but this 1950's contemporary house was very controversial for its leafy suburb when built. It featured in a 1961 edition of Homes & Gardens.

The project to extend it to provide additional entertaining and guest accommodation, is intended to be strikingly contemporary without undermining the integrity of the original house. This time, though, no issues arose as it passed successfully through the planning system despite its location within the Conservation Area.
