The Fields - Darley Dale, Matlock, Derbyshire
Image above: Snap shots of the original designs submitted for planning.
Work to this historic property in Darley Dale, Derbyshire has been completed! Using matching stone, the proposals were to create a double height extension to the front of the property with a large staircase feature window capturing views across the Dales. A single storey wrap around porch and utility has also been constructed as well as a full garage annex conversion with dormer windows and velux balcony windows. Our clients now have a large kitchen diner, utility, new bedroom and en-suite plus enough space to accomodate a dependent relative who can still retain a level of independence.
We took this project from inception - Initial concept designs, gaining planning permission from Derbyshire Dales and Building Regulation approval from an approved inspector.
Scoll to the end to see the original house, a vast improvement we think!

Anna listened to our requirements really carefully and came up with a beautiful plan. We went from a 3 bedroomed, one bathroom house with a tight staircase in the middle of the house, to one with two bathrooms, a completely new stairwell extension and large utility area with extra loo. Anna also provided us with plans to convert above the large double garage, which we’ve been living in since the start of the house conversion. We’re not quite finished yet, but it’s absolutely stunning.
Anna’s sage advice and guidance at the start of the project meant that planning was granted very quickly - not bad for a 1760s farm worker’s cottage in the Derbyshire Dales.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Anna and we would thoroughly recommend her.Jac and Cliff
