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.

Design

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.

Co-ordination

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.

Delivery

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.
