Commended in the 2013 Salisbury Civic Society New Buildings Awards Scheme.
The clients requested a home of sustainable and environmentally sound construction, which in its scale, form, and use of materials would be in keeping with its surroundings.
The external skin of the building was lime rendered and reclaimed tiles used on the roof, both of which will age beautifully and allow the cottage to blend seamlessly with the local area.
Internally, the plaster in each corner of every room was hand finished, which softens and gives an authentic cottage appearance. Barn dried Oak beams were inserted in the kitchen and sitting room and an Oak A frame was made on site and inserted into the vaulted bedroom ceiling, enhancing and giving character to the room.

Built 25 years ago by Manor Developments (Salisbury) Limited, The Annexe underwent extensive refurbishment in 2019.
The ground floor layout of the property was reconfigured to enable better use of the space. Double patio doors were fitted to brighten the open-plan area downstairs. The kitchen was relocated and replaced, with new flooring throughout.
Upstairs, new carpet was fitted and the bathroom was completely refurbished.
Throughout the property, the electrics and plumbing were also updated.
The radical refurbishment of the existing house involved moving the position of the stairs and leaving no internal wall in its original position.
