Step inside this extended family home in Hertfordshire

This detached home in Hertfordshire with its wisteria-covered exterior had such an impact on its owners that they decided to up and move from their previous home even though they had only been living there for a year. ‘We’d regretted moving so close to a busy high street and were craving more space for our family and dogs. We loved the look of this house. However, the footprint was surprisingly narrow even though the plot was so large. This didn’t put us off though as we could see that the house had so much potential to extend.’ Obtaining planning permission for a two-storey extension was far more difficult than they’d expected but, 18 months later, work was finally underway to extend the house and change the position of the rooms.
