Work has just completed to a fascinating project in Dunster next to a very busy road and grade I listed churchyard. The grade II listed house has been repaired with all traditional materials but converted to modern living with a low, flat roofed extension which keeps out of sight behind the churchyard walls, with a skylight that floods the new kitchen and dining area with light and gives views of the house and church tower. Work was carried out by local contractors G A Sully.
