Bungalows often present a blank canvas when it comes to property renovations. The single storey design attracts buyers looking for the space and privacy of a home but the long-term flexibility of living space being contained on one floor can make a bungalow a great long-term investment.
It’s certainly what attracted Dr and Professor Wynarczyk to their wonderful home on Brunton Park. The two-bedroom bungalow backs onto Gosforth Golf Course and enjoys stunning views of the rolling greens. The sought a contractor with a view to making the most of the their home and futureproofing design and renovations to suit not only their current lifestyle, but how they wanted to enjoy their home going forward. They came to JD Joinery and Building Services to complete a full renovation, extension and loft conversion.
The design of the bungalow along with the plot size and shape offered real potential to extend the rear of the property and make a feature of the golf greens beyond from an expansive new open plan rear extension. The abundance of glass in the extension leads onto the patio area to enjoy the outdoor space and tiered garden.
New extensions were also added to the side of the property along with a new entrance, utility room and hallway. The entrance and hallway in particular offers excellent use of a roof lantern to bring an abundance of natural light into the property upon first entering. A lovely feature the brings real character and style to the bungalow.
In the roof a loft conversion created a new bedroom with en suite bathroom for added convenience. The bedroom has the welcome addition of a sitting/living space to again make use of the wonderful views over the gardens and the Golf Course.
The internal floorplan of the bungalow was re-designed to support a new layout with walls moved to make better use of the existing space. The original bathroom was completely refurbished and increased in size to provide a more functional space for the owners.
The bungalow looks modern and sophisticated and offers exactly the type of living space the owners desired. They are understandably delighted with their new home and offered the following testimonial on the work undertaken by JD Joinery and the team.
“We recently had large rear and dormer extensions (alongside major internal renovations) carried out by JD Joinery and Building. We selected them on the basis of their long established reputation and Joe Dixon’s enthusiasm to deliver our vision, following several competitive tenders from competent building companies. With the benefit of hindsight we know that we made the right choice and are delighted with the finished product, especially the blending of the new with the old. Joe and his large team (including his sub contractors) not only demonstrated their capabilities in meeting planned requirements but also the unexpected challenges that can arise in any build. Although we were allocated a dedicated supervisor to oversee the build, Joe Dixon himself was only a phone call away and immediately addressed any matters arising during the build. His focus on, and direct attention to, customer care, is excellent. We have no hesitation whatsoever, based on our own experience, in recommending JD Joinery and Building.” Dr and Professor Wynarczyk
