D&M self-build home

After 33 years living in a large old Rectory our clients decided to downsize and build a new dwelling on a garden plot. Having nine grandchildren, they wanted an annexe over the double garage which could also double as an art studio.


The site was within a conservation area and a semi – rural setting. Additionally, the planners wanted any new dwelling to be subservient to the adjacent old rectory. Our design studio came up with a home that reflected everything on our client’s wish list and the approval of the planners and conservation officer.


Given the sensitivity of the site, the choice of quality materials was of primary importance, and involved a number of meetings and discussions with the planning officers.


By using D&M Homes it meant that our clients were able to make the detailed decisions over a longer period of time to ensure the quality and harmony of all aspects. We also introduced them to a great builder who took great pride in their workmanship.

“We absolutely love the house, it works really well for our lifestyle; it is everything we hoped it would be. In hot weather it is a great pleasure to step onto the large terrace for meals, drinks etc, and enjoy views of the garden and beyond.” – Client.
