As a unique opportunity to create two striking new houses on one of the most desirable mature landscaped locations in Prestbury,
The decision was taken to locate the houses to maximise the south facing private gardens, over looked and enjoyed by the principal rooms of each house. To the west, adjacent to the steep slope to the road, we created a secure landscaped entrance courtyard, with views through to both houses. Upon entering each private site we provide the visitors tantalising views through to the pool areas and architecturally designed gardens beyond.
The houses sit amongst the mature trees with steep pitched roofs with deep overhanging eaves, crisp and elegant render and stone elevations are complimented by the use of green oak framing to the larger spaces within. This traditional construction allows the large spans needed to create the open plan living areas and includes the large areas of glazing to give the house a light open feel. This approach results in elegant homes of traditional materials and proportions which contains a series of flowing open plan contemporary spaces suited to modern living.
Calderpeel believes passionately that architecture should address our changing lifestyles. The designs are a direct response to a stunning site, resulting in a blend of traditional architectural language and the best of contemporary living spaces providing romantic family homes.
