Queens Road, Shotley Bridge
When our clients relocated back to Shotley Bridge to buy their first home together they found themselves on the sought-after Queens Road, next door to our completed project from 2022.
In need of a full renovation, the new owners also wanted to extend the ground floor to give themselves more space for entertaining and socialising, and eventually growing their family in. Seeing the work Mountfair Homes had done on their neighbour’s stunning new home, they brought us in to help realise this dream.
A simple design falling within Permitted Development, the extension lies on a footprint of around 4m x 3m but the effect it has is huge. Allowing the downstairs cloakroom to relocate and give the kitchen more space, the extension acts as an access route from the existing home through to the new kitchen.
But it’s not just a hallway, with French doors and a large roof lantern, it lets in lots of light and works perfectly as a social dining area. A large knock-through to the kitchen creates the open-plan aspect, and by keeping the doorway through to the existing house as an opening, rather than installing a door; light, people – and the cat – can flow naturally through the home.
Our clients are over the moon with this project and how it’s turned out and the work they’ve done themselves on the rest of the property is just as impressive. They have truly transformed the house into a stunning family home.

“After seeing a Mountfair Homes project (our next door neighbours), it was clear that the quality and attention to detail was just what we wanted for our own home project. The communication was superb; easy to get in touch with and happy to answer any questions we had. Not only did they go above and beyond to help with our extension, they really made us feel like the little things mattered. The whole build was smooth sailing and we could not be happier with the end result. Thanks you!”
