Existing Front Elevation of Victorian End-Terraced House with Conversion of Single Dwelling House to two Self Contained Flats in London Borough of Ealing

Proposition

Unlocking the full potential of 29 Radbourne Avenue is at the heart of this transformative project. With a focus on creating diverse living options, our team of experts has redesigned the existing structure to seamlessly blend functionality and aesthetics. The result is the creation of two self-contained flats that not only maximize the use of available space but also offer residents their own private access to Radbourne Avenue.

Introduction

Situated in the heart of London, 29 Radbourne Avenue is a three-storey dwelling that encompasses a ground floor, first floor, and a loft floor. Nestled amidst lush surroundings, this residence boasts a front and rear garden, which creates a serene and inviting ambiance. At the centre of the rear garden lies a shed, adding a touch of rustic charm to the outdoor space. The house also offers two separate entrances, ensuring convenience and easy access for residents.

Composition

The extension will provide residents with a larger and more functional kitchen and living room area. It adds 11.76 square meters to the internal space and 1 square meter to the garden area. The extended part faces the garden and features a spacious bifold door, allowing ample natural light to enter. Two rooflights enhance the brightness and openness of the extension. The design of the proposed scheme seamlessly integrates with the modern requirements of a refurbished house. Despite the extension, there will be no change in the building's external height, as it matches the highest point of the current extension. Careful attention has been given to ensure that the living room and garage extension do not disrupt any valuable plants or trees. The existing building is covered in render, and the proposed scheme applies white render to the entire extension, garage, and house to maintain consistency with the neighbourhood and existing structure. This choice ensures a harmonious blend with the surroundings and the character of the neighbourhood.

Before

Planning History

Previously, the building housed a shop on its ground floor, located at the corner of the junction. However, in a prior application the shop was removed and the space was incorporated into the residential area on the ground floor. This alteration was accompanied by the addition of a small rear extension in the garden, intended as an accessible bathroom for the previous elderly owners of the house.


In 2021, the council received two applications for a certificate of lawful development. The first application, pertained to a single-story rear extension on the ground floor. This application was granted in 2021. The second application, proposed a loft extension but was refused based on the determination that it did not meet the requirements for a certificate of lawful development, necessitating a full application instead.


Subsequently, in 2022, a full application was submitted to the council for the same loft extension which was successfully granted in 2022.

Planning

“Conversion of single dwelling house to two self-contained residential units with associated cycle storage and refuse storage facilities”


Having carefully considered the concerns raised by the planning team of the Ealing council and adhering to London planning requirements, this project successfully accomplishes the conversion of a single dwellinghouse into two separate self-contained flats. With a focus on developing a sustainable and secure approach, this endeavour aims to accommodate two family flats, each capable of housing three individuals. The ground floor flat consists of two bedrooms, while the maisonette flat on the first and second floors features two bedrooms and a study. Both flats offer the convenience of spacious built-in storage and the added delight of private gardens. It is important to note that the new layout preserves the outer envelope of the building, ensuring that its external appearance remains unchanged.
