Bridgewater House, Altrincham
It is rare to come across a property that is situated immediately adjacent to Bridgewater canal. The owners were keen to achieve views down the canal but wished to maintain a degree of privacy given that the opposite side of the canal has a fairly regular flow of walkers and cyclists along the path. The house is situated in the Oldfield Brow area of Altrincham which is typified by late 20th century housing developments. As a result, the positioning of the house and it’s unique relationship with the canal were the main focus and we were able to treat the external design of the property as more of a blank canvas.
