Oxfordshire

This sprawling property on the outskirts of Oxford is made up of two sections, with the additional building beautifully intertwining with the original structure.

The focal point is the impressive glass atrium that forms part of the modern extension, with a series of full-height sash windows opening this entire section of the house out to one of the two south-facing gardens.

This stunning five-bedroom property superbly highlights what is possible when old and new are brought together with real attention to detail. The original 1930’s wing retains its period windows, doors and beautiful stone fireplaces, while the extension feels other-worldly as it draws your gaze outside.

This property is listed for sale with The Modern House.

Cambridgeshire

It’s not easy to sympathetically transform a 16th century property into a family home fit for the modern day but this cosy Cambridgeshire cottage has been on that exact journey.

This gorgeously characterful property has been extended to create a light and airy kitchen/family room that is absolutely perfect for hosting parties and relaxing with friends.

The home still retains period features such as an inglenook fireplace and old school wood burner, but it also boasts skylights and modern wooden beams that gracefully dovetail with the cottage’s overall quintessential village personality.

Cornwall

This Cornish cottage is the epitome of rustic rural charm, with its classy extension being a textbook example of how to upgrade a home in style.

The four-bedroom family home strikes a magnificent balance between period country character and 21st century living. Its solid wood doors, hardwood and flag stone floors, sash windows and exposed stonework are handsomely complimented by luxuriously contemporary features and a practical modern extension.

You’ll also find stables and a workshop in 2.3 acres of land outside, which could also be given a new lease of life.

This property is listed for sale with Humberts.

Somerset

This isn’t so much an extension as a full-blown renovation, but it makes the cut because it’s an absolutely incredible home.

Set within the expansive footprint of the barn’s original foundations, the interior covers an enormous 10,000 sq ft, with soaring ceiling heights and sliding walls that show off the beautiful countryside all around.

This converted barn is a genuine playground for adults and children alike, but one amusing feature is the slide which runs adjacent to the staircase.

The space feels modern, fun and full of character. Exposed whitewashed brickwork and polished concrete floors create an industrial feel, but other details, such as the wood burner and beamed living room ceiling, nod to the local agricultural environment.
