Brian and Cecelia purchased an old bungalow on a sloping site in West Sussex, with the view of knocking the existing bungalow down and building a home that worked for them.
The couple approached Revolution Homes to help them achieve their brief. Key elements of the brief included good energy performance and minimal maintenance in use. The couple wanted an attractive landscaping scheme that would blend the property into its setting.

The agreed design was for a four-bedroom dwelling with an openplan kitchen-diner and floor-to-ceiling glazing that would maximise the vista. The ground floor is built into the slope in blockwork masonry, while the upper floor is of stick-built in timber. The original house was constructed on private estate land with narrow lanes, and using such easy-to-deliver materials (rather than large pre-assembled panels) helped overcome these accessibility issues.

The design and build package from Revolution Homes includes a full 10-year warranty. Known as The White House, the scheme features crisp external render, high-performance aluminium windows and a first floor balcony that allows the couple to enjoy the panoramas.

A steel roof was chosen to reduce the amount of guttering and drainage on display, further underpinning the property’s sleek look. The project features a good standard of fixtures and fittings throughout, along with underfloor heating. The front of the house is approached via a sweeping, sloped driveway – and this helped to shape the landscaping, which was a key element of the initial design and the couple’s vision. Existing planting at the rear had to be relocated before the main construction phase got underway, due the limitations of the inclined site, and over 60 tonnes of stone and other materials were brought in to create the rockery.
