At Merrywood it was important to preserve the original character and charm of this 1950s house, but give it a modern twist to bring it bang up to date.




4 en suite
+ 1 family

Floor Space

185+ m²


Wraparound landscaped gardens plus three slate terraces

We used heritage windows to mimic the original Crittall-style frames, and fully restored the parquet floor to give it a stunning new lease of life. We also opened up the extensive roof space which created a very spacious living area with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, perfect for the whole family to enjoy Cornwall. By introducing modern lighting design and a smattering of luxury finishes to give it that touch of class the owners were looking for.

"The transformation you carried out was nothing short of remarkable! You reimagined this traditional Cornish cottage into a home that has been completely re-designed for modern living, whilst simultaneously managing to retain the original charm and character. The sensitivity of the restoration makes for a happy neighbourhood all round. Thank you Green & Rock for your seamless management of this project  we're impressed with the attention to detail and excellent aftercare.”
