House Extension at Priestfield Rd Edinburgh
A striking contemporary extension and refurbishment of an existing house in South Edinburgh.
The solid but dated 1930's bungalow has been transformed into a spacious and light-filled modern home for a growing family, with a distinctive timber-clad, zinc-roofed extension to the side and rear providing improved accessibility and a direct connection to the house’s mature gardens. The new open-plan living area to the rear enjoys extensive full-height glazing, affording stunning views out to Arthur’s Seat and the Salisbury Crags, while new slot windows provide glimpses out as well as places to sit at child height.
As part of the works the existing house has been fully refurbished, with a small scullery and maid’s room combined to form a modern dining kitchen with integrated double doors to the original hallway. A new master ensuite and accessible family shower room have been formed within the existing floorspace, and underfloor heating has been installed throughout the extension and kitchen to provide a high level of amenity for modern life while retaining period features and character.
