Ascot Design was asked by a developer client to create something unique for this wooded location, aimed at the luxury new home market.
Having considered the site in detail, our preference was to adopt the appearance and features from the Arts and Crafts era. Our modern adaptation of this influential building style incorporates characteristics for flexible modern family living, delivering tall room proportions and large windows for natural daylight.
Elevations are deliberately unbalanced and include intricate brickwork detailing and a layered arch entrance to the building. They also include large bay windows, vertical tile hanging and traditional high quality materials.
The interior layout includes a modern open plan kitchen, dining and living area and a central stairwell that allows natural light to flow into the middle of the house. The well-proportioned bedroom suites have large bathrooms and extensive clothes storage areas.
Overall the result is a charming home with period character, which also meets the demands of today’s busy lifestyles.
