This stylish new home replaced an existing pebble-dashed 1940’s bungalow of no architectural merit, offered to our client by their father.
The bold, two storey design incorporates large expanses of glazing to maximise panoramic views across the countryside and allow light to flood the interior.
The planning approval was hard fought, obtained by utilising clever detailed design solutions in order to overcome strong objections from the local representatives of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)
The floor plan is specifically designed around the views, with the majority of the open plan living spaces located on the ground floor, orientated to face the south and west, whilst the first floor plan allows each bedroom to gain an elevated perspective of the south facing views.
A material palette of larch cladding, which will turn a beautiful silver over time, grey brick and powder coated aluminium windows and doors give the building a clean crisp aesthetic.
WDA have designed us a beautiful, yet practical home that suits our living style and makes the upmost of its location. They also recommended us to some excellent local builders.”
