New Surrey Home gets an Amazing Traditional Look – Homify Article

Location, location, location – that saying certainly rings true when it comes to property, and today’s little discovery once again proves that.

The project? The creation of a traditional Arts and Crafts-style home for clients who, after living in modern houses for several years, decided to build much more character into their new home. Thus, enter the professionals over at Des Ewing Residential Architects and task them to create something traditional, yet at the same time take advantage of some more modern and simple lines.

Work in progressA

As we can see, it’s all systems go for the conjuring of this stunning new family home. And even though it’s not complete yet, it doesn’t take a clairvoyant to see the traditional look of the house-to-be.

As many natural materials were used as possible, including cobbles, handmade roof tiles, lime render, and timber flooring.

That view

Shifting our perspective ever so slightly allows us a fantastic look at that even more fantastic view. How strikingly do the greens and blues of Mother Nature complement the neutral and earthy tones of the traditional house?

The vision: Front façade

We might not be psychic, but we have extremely professional contacts, and they’ve provided us with a futuristic vision of what the finished house will look like – thus, feast your eyes on this 3D rendering!

Don’t you think it looks like a house straight out of a fairytale? As we can see (and heard from the designers in charge), this house majors more on taste and style than glamour. As you walk around it, each corner will provide you with an interesting and surprising perspective.

The vision: Rear façade

The rear of the house is equally enticing, providing both a royal and lush look thanks to the expertly-made house and the dream-like garden surrounding it.

Let’s have a look at some more images, shall we?

This discovery reminds us of another little gem we recently encountered: England’s smallest castle.

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

12

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.
