A small collection of luxurious 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes arranged within the quintessentially English country village of Chardstock.
The development comprises of a total of ten individually designed bespoke homes within the village.
With the developments adjoining the boundary of the village conservation area particular attention was given to the detailing of the homes to ensure that they sat comfortably within the context of a very traditional village setting.
The challenge to the designers was meet the requirements of such a sensitive setting and mixture of house types whilst also delivering a development of the highest quality and living space to meet the needs of modern family living with light airy spaces and open plan living.
To achieve this the developer opted for a simple palette of traditionally and locally sourced materials, principally natural chert stone and a mixture of roughcast and smooth colour washed render to provide subtle variety and an individual identity to each dwelling and to complete the rural appearance and feel of the design.
To compliment this traditional approach a variety of glazed elements to units were introduced wherever possible to achieve the light airy feel to the interiors.
The detailing of the elevations was key to the success of the overall project, from the individual simple porch details to the different glazing bars applied to the traditional timber balanced casement windows, ensuring that each home was individual with its own clear identity whilst complimenting the overall feel of the development. The rounded corners to the rendered walls, window and door reveals with the traditional palette of materials used sensitively ensured the development fitted seamlessly into its traditional village setting.
This notion of individuality and attention to detail was carried on through the interiors of each plot, with bespoke designed kitchen and bathrooms throughout the entire development fitted to the highest quality.
