This new-build house replaces an existing bungalow on Roman Road, within the Little Aston Park Conservation Area in Sutton Coldfield. The design brief was to produce a family home with a pared down traditional appearance and some contemporary touches.
The plot has an enviable position overlooking a lake so we introduced large windows and bi-folding doors to the rear elevation. A balcony and frameless glass handrail from the master bedroom and an aligned stone terrace from the rear family space also take full advantage of the views to the rear.
The house is almost 7000sqft over three floors and each of the five bedrooms are positioned around a central atrium and glazed oak framed entrance bay. Lots of natural light spills into the house and views to the green surroundings are opened up from every room.
