Listed Building - Grade II, Within a Conservation Area


Louise Crossman Architects

The Potato Store , Withycombe , Minehead , Somerset , TA24 6QB , United Kingdom

This Grade II Listed property on the banks of the Exe estuary was built in 1703 as a boat building workshop and sail loft before being converted to a house in 1910. The property had undergone various, confusing additions and alterations over the years, including gothic stone mullion windows and church panelling. We were appointed to redesign the layout and refurbish the building to create a spacious modern home. Working closely with our clients and the contractors, this beautiful open plan home was finished to a very high standard, with stunning views over the Exe estuary.
