The existing rear extension was a late 20th century addition to this Grade II Listed dwelling. It was proposed to demolish and rebuild this extension to make it more thermally efficient and structurally robust. The construction would mimic the external dimensions of the existing lean-to and use reclaimed and additional stonework to match the existing dwelling. The roof was concrete double roman profile tiles which were replaced with clay pantiles to match the existing outbuilding.

The proposed lean-to extension accommodates a reclaimed window to the Western Gable and a bi-folding aluminium doorset to the Southern Elevation. The bi-folding doorset would be a contemporary addition in dark grey aluminium. The proportions of which mimicked the previous door opening.

Other internal alterations included the removal of a modern timber stud wall, creation of entrance lobby, installation of a wet room, kitchen and utility units to the ground floor, removal of lowered ceiling and proposed en-suite to the Master Bedroom at first floor. All works were removable and similar alterations had been undertaken historically and more recently in similar properties within East Witton. These works were not deemed to effect the residential character of the heritage asset.

For the outbuildings, It was proposed to remove and set aside the existing clay pantile roof covering and reinstate this following the installation of insulation and a vapour permeable membrane. The existing velux roof lights were replaced during this exercise with more sympathetic conservation style roof lights. Internally it was proposed to remove the modern access stair, reconfigure the landing area at first floor level and provide a staircase that accommodates building regulation requirements.
