Large, open-plan spaces with an interconnection between the inside and the outdoors was what these home owners were after.

The interior of the home opens onto the garden and views, while maintaining a sense of privacy from the street. “We are a very active family, and like to run, walk and cycle. The estate provides the necessary open spaces and paths within a secure environment to allow us to do that,” the home owner says.

As the large driveway is an area in which the children play, the vehicles are catered for in the triple garage. A modest undercover entrance opens up into a double-volume space, a feature of which is a large bookshelf that draws the eye to the study on the first floor.
