REFURBISHMENT OF
TOWN HOUSES

Working within the confines of a town house, we dig down to create basements or up to add loft rooms as well as carefully modernising traditional homes with stunning contemporary kitchens and bathrooms to suit town living.

Extending up or down is common in town houses and we are experts in working with designers and architects on projects that demand extreme care in order to preserve the original structure and attention to detail to get the modern finish just right. Our craftsmen and women use traditional techniques and materials to replicate the original features whilst incorporating the very latest in interior design and styles, technologies and finishes to reflect the needs of modern day town living.

From classical drawing rooms and entrance halls to temperature controlled underground wine and cheese cellars, high tech cinema rooms and traditional libraries, bespoke modern kitchens and orangeries, relaxed family rooms and formal dining rooms, WG Carter has built them all.

We pull together the ideas of architects, the inspiration of interior designers and the dreams of the client to create a town house home of true beauty. This often involves building an extension, incorporating large glass doors, adding roof lights and glazed roofs, all sympathetic to the existing town house and its setting.

Confined site conditions

Town houses often provide more challenges than country houses. Being in built up areas presents tighter site conditions with the need to carefully manoeuvre plant and materials through a house to get to the rear as well as keeping the traffic flowing, pedestrians safe and neighbours happy. WG Carter is used to working on the refurbishment of many town house projects to deliver a finished home that inspires and delights.
