Jeremy King Architects has been given the go-ahead for a new extension to an early Victorian house on the cliff above Walmer Castle and beach in east Kent
The scheme will see an existing self-contained annexe to the original Glen Hill House replaced with a new accommodation wing dressed in ashlar stone.
According to the Deal-based practice, the large detached house was built in 1842 by an ancestor of the current owners and has remained in the family. An ’architecturally awkward’ three-bedroom annexe, which will be demolished, was constructed in 1899.
A spokesperson said: ’The project is seen as a legacy for future generations of the family to enjoy.’
Work is expected to start on site this October.
