Sandy Point Road, Hayling Island

Updated: Oct 27, 2023



ARCHITECT: Vale Southern



On Hayling Island, Vale Southern Construction constructed a stunning, new build home with features designed to minimise environmental impact and maximise aesthetics.

The Brief

Located on a corner plot, this contemporary new-build home was designed to make best use of the space. Surrounded by other residents, it was important for the exterior to respect neighbouring properties in terms of scale and height. The owner also wanted to prioritise environmentally friendly, low maintenance building materials.

Making a statement

To meet the design brief, Vale Southern delivered a chalet style bungalow with three bedrooms and bathrooms. Traditionally built, the property was constructed using blockwork and solid foundations. To maximise the space, the bedrooms were built within the roof space, requiring a timber frame.

At the heart of the home is an impressive, vaulted entrance featuring a large, triangular window which floods the hallway with natural light. Prioritising symmetry, the same style windows were fitted by Vale Southern in the adjoining bedrooms within the roof space. This required the team to install steelwork to accommodate the window’s unique triangular design.

The high-specification interior also saw Vale Southern install underfloor heating throughout the property and Ca Pietra luxury tiles.

Eco friendly materials

To improve the home’s environmental credentials, composite cladding was installed on the exterior of the vaulted entrance and surrounding the triangular windows at each side of the property.

Manufactured by Ecoscape, the cladding is made from a mixture of recycled wood and plastic making it highly durable and more eco-friendly compared to other cladding types. The use of composite materials also means the cladding will be very resistant to water absorption, staining, scratching, and warping, ensuring minimal maintenance for the homeowner.

Composite fencing from Ecoscape was also incorporated around the property’s border. This eco-friendly alternative to wooden fencing doesn’t crack, warp or need to be painted, reducing the need for expensive maintenance.

The environmentally friendly building materials are complemented by solar panels on the roof.

A shining example

Throughout the build, Vale Southern ensured the neighbours were kept informed, helping to minimise any disruption. Thanks to stringent programming and a commitment to quality, the new home, named Sunny Corner, was successfully constructed and finished in nine months.
