This project involved the demolition of an existing house and garage, to design and construct a contemporary, but characterful, two storey detached luxury home.
The property sits in one of three sub-divided plots off Dunham Road and within the Devisdale Conservation Area. The design sensitively follows the principles set out within the Conservation Area Guidelines, of varied roof lines and multiple gables.
The character of the design drew inspiration from the older Villa style houses within Bowdon. Our contemporary interpretation of these period architectural details and incorporation of reclaimed and local materials, provided a fresh take on the local period style, whilst ensuring continuity in appearance with the surroundings.
The principle behind the design was to create a “main house” two storey element, with an ancillary annex in the form of a garage with secondary accommodation above and swimming pool. This ensured the aesthetic was not overbearing.
The juxtaposition of gables and steeply pitched slate roofs, the mixture of buff yellow / red brick and natural stone, the traditional sash and casement windows, concurrently create visual stimulation and character.
This stunning luxurious home includes a Leisure Suite to the rear overlooking a beautiful mature, formal and spacious garden.
