This wonderful new build house is located in the Cotswolds, towards the edge of an existing village, with enviable views out over open countryside. The site is located within a conservation area and in fairly close proximity to a listed building. The client’s brief was to maximise the site to create a substantial, new build, detached country house to include an out-building with a double carport, and a garden maintenance store.
The sensitivity of the village edge site and adjacency to the listed building dictated a traditional approach to building form and materials. The focus was on achieving an elegant and beautifully proportioned property with a strong sense of arrival and an appropriate degree of formality and grandeur to the principal elevation. To the rear, large expanses of glazing take advantage of the lovely west facing countryside views, along with a high quality, projecting oak framed glazed gable, that sits centrally on the rear facade.
The new 3 storey dwelling provides a total of 6 bedrooms, each with its own en-suite, including a fabulous master suite. At ground floor there is a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area, larder, boot room/utility, plant room, home office/study, and a separate drawing/sitting room.
This project follows on from a number of successful luxury country houses delivered by the Thinking Buildings Team. This project was expertly guided throughout by Miriam Owen, Iain Summerwood MRTPI and Sam Biles at Edgars planning consultants.
