About This Project

This unique rural residence is located on a truly picturesque site and was designed for a private client.

While respecting the general profile of the original building, it was very important to the client that the new home maximised the potential of its setting and combined comfortable contemporary living with dramatic styling.

The stunning open-plan design takes full advantage of the single storey space and ensures that every square foot of the available floor area is utilised.

Some of the design features include double-height vaulted ceilings in living areas improving volume and a sense of space and light. At ground level are impressive double-sided fireplaces, and the bedrooms are designed with stylish mezzanine decks to create open plan living across two levels.

Outside, a series of replacement outbuildings were created in a contrasting architectural style, to provide a rural farmyard feel in keeping with the property’s countryside location. These outbuildings provide valuable home office accommodation, garaging and storage.

High quality materials including Cotswold stone to the façades and bronze casement windows, all contribute greatly to the character of the property. The end result is a design loved by our clients, and endorsed by the local authority and local residents.

Most importantly, the client was delighted and commented:

“I knew what I wanted. Ascot Design not only delivered but also understood my thinking. It was a partnership. It worked.”
