A stunning makeover

Case in point: A three-bedroom house in Yorkshire that had seen better days. Its outdated décor, 1970s architectural features and two extensions weren’t accentuating the property’s benefits – namely the large garden and stunning countryside views.

After purchasing the property, the new owners saw great potential in this large corner plot and planned a huge front-to-back renovation that included connecting the two existing extensions to create one large open plan space.

Their plans also included modernising the home throughout, adding an additional storey to the side extension to accommodate a master bedroom and en suite, as well as building a huge external raised patio area to seamlessly connect to the new open plan kitchen and dining area to the large garden outside, bringing the home into the 21st century.

Thanks to Express’ extensive product range, the team was able to introduce glazing solutions throughout the entire property, providing seamless luxury, from the slim aluminium windows to the solar panelled integral blinds. The feature entrance provided a perfect centre piece, with Express’ modern, solid front entrance door with adjacent sidelights leading through to a contemporary hallway.

The property is complete with bi-folding doors providing seemingly endless views of the countryside to connect the house to its setting beautifully.

A total transformation

The 5-month transformation of this house was nothing short of remarkable. The full renovation cost £200,000 and increased the value to more than £700,000, in excess of double the purchase price of the house. Best of all, it made it a dream home to live in.
