Creating a Master Retreat in Mile End

The Client's Story

The original space possessed inherent character, characterised by its lofty, ornate ceilings, spacious rooms and elegant sash windows. The primary objective was to seamlessly extend this distinctive charm to harmonise with the rest of the house, whilst transforming a bedroom to include a Walk-in Robe and ensuite.

While the rest of the house boasted an array of premium features, it was missing one essential element: a dedicated ensuite and walk-in robe for the main bedroom. The clients expressed a desire for the master retreat to be complete with a top-tier walk-in robe and ensuite. They envisioned these spaces to exude a welcoming, serene and ambiance feel with a profound sense of opulence.


This project presented challenges right from the outset. One of the main challenges we encountered throughout construction was preserving the handcrafted original ornate cornicing. We needed to seamlessly extend this intricate detail around a new robe and wall that were installed. Our exceptionally skilled tradespeople tackled what initially appeared to be a formidable task and executed it with the utmost precision and expertise.

We crafted an arched doorway that connected the main bedroom to the adjacent spare bedroom. This spare room underwent a complete overhaul, becoming an exquisite walk-in robe and ensuite. The gorgeous timber floors were salvaged and meticulously restored in the walk in robe, creating a seamless flow from one room to the next. A dividing wall was meticulously erected between the robe and the ensuite, housing a spacious flush line cavity slider and an in-wall cistern for the cutting-edge smart toilet. The introduction of new ceilings, wall linings, and carefully chosen tiles, along with bespoke joinery fit for royalty, breathed life into these spaces, turning the envisioned transformation into a tangible reality.

This renovation is a seamless masterpiece, leaving no detail unattended. As you move from one room to another, the captivating character seamlessly permeates every inch of the space. It perfectly fulfills the clients’ wishlist, providing ample bespoke joinery for organised living and multiple dedicated spaces for preparing for the day ahead. The fixtures and fittings exude an understated elegance that beautifully complements the overall aesthetic of the house.
