Grand Designs! 

We’ve spent so much time on this blog focussing on the super structure, now it’s time to take a look at the plans for the soft and hard landscaping for once the house itself is finished.   At the start of the design process, the spectacular views from the open plan kitchen and living area set at the back of the house, are what have driven the brief and design of this stunning build.  A level threshold will blend the luxury kitchen with the patio and outdoor terraces, giving the home- owners a wonderful space to live in and enjoy.

Replacing a rather underwhelming 1960’s chalet bungalow set in the most beautifully established and mature gardens mean that we inherited a truly super starting point!  The new house sits lengthways on the plot, so the landscape designer has cleverly planned to use the outdoor spaces to the suit the brief of our client. 

A hidden and secluded area running along the side of the house and bordering the perimeter fence is intended as a reflective and peaceful zen garden. Leading out from the back of the kitchen will be a fabulous out- door terrace, including an outdoor kitchen and entertaining space which will have a very inviting fire pit with steps leading down to the mature gardens. And finally, from the side doors of the kitchen there will be a charming fruit and vegetable garden with raised beds, bordered by Cedar screens,  importantly separating the driveway and parking area from what will be beautifully landscaped gardens!

It’s a little way off yet before we are ready to invite the landscape gardeners on site, but we are looking forward to it nevertheless!
