Mill Cottage

Cayton Bay, North Yorkshire

Mill Tower House

2002 - 2004

Our dramatic transformation to Mill Cottage, south of Scarborough in Cayton bay, redefines the house’s identity becoming a home hosting family, events and a large art collection, a landmark for the village of a windmill that never was.

Often when considering an extension our clients assume nothing bigger than a conservatory will make it through planning approval, Mill Cottage is a prime example of an extension which totally redefined the original home.

We have learned over the years to be bold, aim to truly enhance your surroundings rather than accepting the bland aims of the local authority.

♢  Coastal Bay Setting

♢  Central Tower Addition

♢  A New Village Landmark

We developed a design centred around a three storey tower which improved the homes connectivity across multiple levels, hosting a grand octagonal living space, a lavish en-suite master bedroom and a third floor photography studio with external balcony capturing panoramic views of the coast & Yorkshire Wolds.

Our design transformed what was previously a dark corner of the cottage into a brightly lit entrance hall and gallery, holding a highly bespoke polished Sapele staircase, lit generously from above by a large array of rooflights.
