A SUBSTANTIAL HOUSE DESIGNED AND BUILT TO ORDER
Ensleigh Croft is one of two houses we built on a plot in Lansdown, Bath, previously occupied by a dated bungalow, which was demolished. It's the first home in the video shown above, which also displays the extension at Stoneleigh Lodge and Beckford's View.
Sustainability is one of the key features of this five-bedroom home. Despite its traditional, Italianette villa-style appearance, the house is super-insulated and has very low running costs. Features include solar panels, air source heat pumps, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems, grey water tanks and low temperature under floor heating. Internally, the design is open plan, with a flexible living vibe which is full of comfort. Huge, panoramic doors across the rear of the building afford a priceless view across the valley behind to the village of Swainswick. Local stone was used for the render, along with natural slate for the roof.
Survey, architectural design and project management
By surveying the site and carrying out a feasibility study, we helped the client maximise the value of the land where these two houses were constructed to a very high specification. We carried out a full architectural, surveying and project management service including contract administration between the client and the builders. This desirable, luxury house was sold off plan prior to the completion of the build.
