Music House


The scheme is located in the sought after Leeds Road area of Harrogate. Despite loving where they lived, our client asked us to investigate alternative layouts to improve their home where they could comfortably spend time together, entertain friends with ease, pursue their hobbies, and home-work productively.  

Portrait proposed a small rear extension and downstairs reconfiguration. This allowed for a large kitchen, seating and dining area at the heart of the house – the hub of family life. Full height glazing was included to bring in plenty of natural light, and a large cantilevered window which would double up as a bar area for entertaining on summer’s evenings. A new utility space was also created with external access, as well as a sound-proof cinema room for the whole family to enjoy (and also play their array of musical instruments). 

Additionally, the property’s garage, which was tired and impractical, was rebuilt to provide a large car garage and storage zone, further indoor/entertaining space with access to the terrace, and a home-office retreat looking out over the garden.
