Brief: Mansard loft conversion to a home in Wimbledon, South West London, creating one bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
With more than a quarter of all UK houses being terraced, more and more property owners of terraced homes are looking to expand to gain much needed extra space.
As we have done here with our client Harry from Wimbledon, London, a mansard loft conversion was required. Mansard loft conversions are deemed some of the most aesthetically pleasing types of loft conversion. in this example, by adding the mansard conversion onto an existing roof of a cramped attic, the loft can be transformed into usable space thanks to the creation of additional headroom and floor space all bathed in natural light provided by the dormer windows.
Here Simply Loft has fully fitted the new bathroom and bedroom which has resulted in a truly charming and welcoming space. Additional storage has also been added with under eaves cupboards and a fitted closet.
In the majority of our projects, as was the case for Harry and his family, adding a dormer loft conversion to a house falls under permitted development and will not require planning permission. It is however important to be aware of the specific conditions and limitations of permitted development. The Simply Loft team would be able to advise you further whether your project falls within permitted development when one of our experienced surveyors visits you at your home.
