New Build in Green Belt

This luxurious 6,000 sq ft home is located in the Green Belt area of the Chiltern Hills. The bucolic surroundings and planning restrictions of the Green Belt, coupled with it being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) presented many design challenges.

The approach to this dwelling is through cast iron traditional gates which offer you a glimpse of the beyond. These gates are flanked by perfectly proportioned well dressed entrance pillars.

This bespoke home was designed with simple symmetrical lines with details on the windows towards Georgian dimensions and sliding sash windows. This created an elegant but imposing frontage that married comfortably with the surroundings.

Whilst maximising the size of the dwelling was a project requirement, so to was working within the restrictive planning constraints of the area. The use of single storey elements to the side helped to create the spacing between dwellings the planners sought.

Inside, the layout over 3 floors maximised the footprint, every space was utilised. The repetition of roof lines at ground and first storey, with triangular windows for accent details, created a harmonised look.
