Architect Alison Poole focused on light, space, family and taking in the beautiful Lakeland views when designing her self build home.
"I wanted to make better use of the sloping site, the lovely light up here and the views over the open countryside - without compromising the streetscape," says Alison.
The resulting design is split over three levels, with a partial lower ground floor forming an L-shaped footprint that connects the house with the garden.
The two-bedroom home features a kids' zone that could be easily turned into an extra bedroom in the future, as well as functional spaces such as as the linen cupboard to make family life easy to manage.
