Postern Forge, Tonbridge

Postern Forge, Tonbridge

Extension to Grade II Listed private dwelling located within the Greenbelt outskirts of Tonbridge.

James Clague Architects have obtained Planning and Listed Building Consent from Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council (TMBC). The property is a Grade II Listed private dwelling located within the Greenbelt outskirts of the town of Tonbridge. The site was formally an ironworks until the early 17th Century. During this period of industrial use, the site had many workers, and two workmen’s cottages were constructed in the late 16th Century.

The main extension will be sited to the west of the house, linked via a light-touch framed glazed link foyer. The main frame of the extension will be constructed in 4 bays using oak, which will be exposed internally. The roof and walls externally will be clad using tiles, to reflect those used on the host dwelling. The windows will be thin metal dark frames and lined externally with oak. There will be large sliding doors to create a direct view out into the garden.

From standing next to the inglenook fireplace of the siting room, a direct aligned view is created all the way through the house, extension and into the garden. There is a boot/ utility room. The kitchen utilises the main extension space, and a ridge light is centred above the central island. A pantry is located under the catslide element of the main roof. Around the corner is a snug/ TV area.

We look forward to construction beginning later in the year.
