Only one family had owned Patrick and Cressida Murray’s home since it was first built in the seventies. It had been loved and cared for, but when the couple bought the place in February 2014, they saw the potential to bring it up to date. With the help of architect Ben Jones, the house is now a slick zinc- and cedar-wrapped building, extended to the rear, side and into the attic to give them the space they need.
