Twickenham is a rugby town and an ideal riverside living area. The Victorian architecture enhances the area’s appeal. Though living in a period property can sometimes make it difficult to live in the 21st Century, you can also add kitchen extensions to Twickenham and do a few loft conversions.

Types of home extensions suitable in Twickenham
- Side Return – Victorian properties usually have a side alleyway that can accommodate an extension to the side. By knocking through to the new addition, you create a much larger kitchen/dining/living area.
- Rear Extension – built at the rear can extend from border to border. It becomes an option when there is no space for a Side Return or to save the bordering garden space. A Rear extension with bi-fold doors and roof lights can seamlessly merge with the outdoors.
- Wraparound Extension – A much bigger space that wraps around the house is created by connecting a Side Return and a Rear extension. It allows room for a living area, dining, and kitchen area.
- Double Storey Extension is a two-level extension that joins the house at the rear or side. It can save the garden space, but at the same time, increase the square footage of your home.
Do I need planning permission for a Twickenham house extension?
In most cases, a house extension is permitted development. Two-storey side and wraparound extensions do require planning permission. Others can be built without it. As the construction involves shared borders, you will also need Party Wall Agreements from your neighbours. PD rights are lost if;
- Your property is on designated land, or it is listed
- The exterior of the extension is different from the main house
- A Side Extension or Rear Extension is more than 4m in height
- A Rear extension extends beyond the Rear Wall of a detached house by more than 4m and 3m of any other property type
- The double-storey extension extends beyond the Rear wall by more than 3m and exceeds 7m of the border opposite the rear wall of the property
What is the process of building a house extension in Twickenham?
During the free consultation, the company will walk you through the entire process. During this meeting, they learn about your goals for your extension, and they discuss the work we intend to do. They provide a free site visit and a no-obligation quote upon approval. They conduct a comprehensive architectural survey of the property during the Design phase and finalise designs with the local planning authority. Construction will begin after you approve the Build contract.
How much does a home or kitchen extension in Twickenham cost?
