Boat House, Windermere Marina, Lake District: full renovation of a unique boat house

The brief:

To renovate a unique Lake District boat house within a marina development on Lake Windermere and create a contemporary living space that’s also economical to run. The boat house itself sits directly under the living space.

Team on site:

As project managers we brought in our full range of tradesmen to complete the renovation. The bedroom refit required our expert joiners to create the stunning built in wardrobes, while the shower room tiling required the kind of precision work and luxury finish that we are always happy to offer.

Work carried out:

As a complete change from traditional building renovations, much was done to open up the living space and create a truly modern boat house. The balcony offers amazing views over the lake, so the full length glazing really works well in bridging the gap between the living space and this valuable external area. We also provided interior finishing and a modern kitchen fit. All of the work had sustainability as a key outcome as the space needed to be economical to run in spite of its very open layout.

    Troughtons did a fabulous job on our property. Their attention to detail and design input together with their craftsmanship, transformed a rundown 1960's flat into a wonderful modern living space. Throughout the work their team were friendly, helpful, conscientious and reliable. It's not just me who is impressed by the quality of the finish, I've also had comments from the visitors who have stayed there too.
