This self-build project, designed around an old one bedroomed cottage, is of a timber frame clad with rendered blockwork and roofed in Spanish slate on the unorthodox roof design.

The design was to provide an open plan living space interlinking with each other from kitchen to dining to lounge area, but when required the lounge area could be cordoned off with concealed sliding doors inset within the walls.

The property provides five bedroom accommodation with three ensuites, all accessed from the large gallery balcony over the living space. Each bedroom has its own patio door with views over the local wood. The gardens, when finished, will be a mix of complimentary white dwarf stucco walls, dark slate paving and softened with a range of exotic plating including bamboo, cypress trees and wild flowers, the timber feature of the garden will frame the patio into the adjacent woodland with distressed oak planks and sleepers.
