Picture perfect lifestyle setting

Set high on the land with expansive rural views, our client’s 5 acre lifestyle site at Grace James Road offered the new owners both a stunning family setting and the challenge of a prevailing south-westerly wind.

Our task was to create indoor and outdoor living spaces which would be take advantage of the view while being comfortably sheltered from the wind. As a further challenge, the family also wanted a pool, but were adamant they didn’t wish to look out over it.

Our solution saw a modern, sleek and open home designed to work with the site, our client’s wishes and the space required by two growing teenage boys.

We faced the main living areas to the north where they would take in the view, yet be sheltered from the prevailing wind for comfortable enjoyment on even the freshest of days. To the rear, we created an enclosed courtyard where the pool was situated. This created for the family, a sheltered outdoor recreation area that enjoyed full sun whilst also not forming part of the home’s outlook.
