New build modern 6 bedroom eco home

Named ‘Dreamcatcher’, the new build property features six bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, a swimming pool with large sliding doors to the patio, separate annex, integral garage and extensive landscaping, including a croquet lawn and pond. 

Working in partnership with architects Mitchell Evans, and the homeowner, Vale Southern was responsible for demolishing an existing building and realising the design vision.

Strip foundations were laid followed by reinforced concrete works to accommodate the swimming pool and a special pool plant room in the basement.

The structure of the new home was constructed using a timber frame, providing an environmentally-friendly solution, which was also around 20 per cent quicker than a traditional build. Once installed, Vale Southern sourced and installed stone cladding that was specified to complement both the timber and West Country architecture.

The roof structure is designed to reflect traditional oast houses seen in Kent, with striking pyramid shapes housing each of the bedrooms. A total of 32 large, glulam beans were used to create the six pyramid shapes which were assembled on the ground by Vale Southern before being individually lifted into position using a tower crane.

Internally, a lift was installed along with two staircases with one leading to the annex and the other sweeping up to the corner of a large living area on the first floor. Windows fitted in this space provide an impressive view of the new swimming pool.
