Retaining a reputation as an exclusive resort, Frinton-on-Sea retains an atmosphere of the 1920s and 30s. Tree-lined avenues bearing large period homes sweep down towards the town’s mile long sandy beach; where hundreds of beach huts lie just beyond the elegant esplanade separated from the town by the popular greensward.
Frinton-on-Sea is also home to a dozen or so stunning Art Deco buildings, created by the 1920’s architect Oliver Hill whose plans to develop a luxury Victorian and art deco building estate including cliff top hotel, cinema, churches and houses were sadly halted by the outbreak of war in 1939.
With a good proportion of Frinton-on-Sea properties dating back to the 1920s and 30s, the opportunities for installing a loft conversion into a Frinton-on-Sea property are plentiful. Traditional properties of the period are a mix of red brick, pebbledash and half timbering with red clay roofs; laid out internally with a hallway leading to a living room, dining room and kitchen with usually three bedrooms and internal bathroom upstairs.
Modern living has seen a marked trend towards open plan living, with many television property shows encouraging us to knock down walls to create large kitchen diners in favour of two separate rooms. Upstairs the desired number of bathrooms in a home has led to the increased popularity in creating en-suite bathrooms in order to make your home more desirable.
In many cases, attempts to improve the upstairs layouts of such homes can result in much smaller rooms and barely useable bathrooms. By making use of empty attic space, choosing to create a loft conversion will give the space you require to create perhaps a master suite; a luxurious master bedroom at the top of your home complete with en-suite bathroom and perhaps walk in dressing room; the perfect requirement of modern day living.
