Homify – Elegant single-family house!

Great article on one of projects on Homify! Although written in German, don’t let that stop you reading it! Below you can see the translated version.

Today we gave you the project of our English architecture expert Des Ewing Residential Architects which you could also imagine very well in Germany. The clients wanted a house that exudes classic elegance while still providing the comfort, design and energy efficiency of a modern home. We’ll show you the impressive result.

Exterior Terrace

The outside area and the environment should play an important role in the design. That is why the architects decided to create generous window areas to, ensure fantastic views and seamless transitions between indoors and outdoors, as well as numerous possibilities to use the outer space. In addition to two spacious terraces, there is the beautifully landscaped garden, a generous driveway and a balcony at the back of the upper floor.

The Entrance

We change our viewpoint a bit and now we see the driveway to the right of the house, which leads to the imposing entrance area. The front door is flanked by elegant columns and protected from wind and weather by a canopy. On closer inspection, we can see that the building was built on a hillside site, which falls rather steeply backwards.

Golf course

And so it looks on the back of the family house. From here the inhabitants can enjoy spectacular views into the valley thanks to the large windows. Here, in a raised position, a second terrace was laid out dedicated to the passionate hobby of the clients: An artificial golf course in small format invites you to relax in the fresh air. There is also another balcony, through which glass walls a magnificent view of the surroundings.

Kitchen

The interior of the house reflects 100% the exterior: here too, a harmonious, balanced blend of modern design and classic elegance was set. Here we see the open kitchen, which, with its handle-less fronts, the large island in the middle and the high-tech equipment makes a thoroughly stylised impression and lacks nothing in terms of comfort and function. Details such as the huge orchid pot, the round chandelier and the art collection of the clients lend the house a personal, stylish, luxurious touch.

Living room

Finally, let’s take a look into the living room, which is classically elegant and comfortably furnished and is flooded with natural light thanks to large windows on several sides.

Vernacular farm dwelling

On site early this morning and we are extremely happy to see that everything is coming together nicely. The slate roof is going on as we speak, finally making it water proof in this unpredictable weather! This traditional, simplistic, classic farm house is set in the countryside of Armagh and overlooks a tranquil lake. An idyllic setting to surround your dream home.
