Set in the grounds of a large country house in the heart of Rock, this new dwelling will provide a smaller more managable property for the owners.


Client Brief

To create a spacious yet practical living space, ensuring that the downstairs is easiest negotiated by less mobile members of the family.  To fit in the large front garden giving the feeling of space a light whilst giving a low maintenance outside area.

Sprouts Role

This is a Design and Build Project for Sprout.  Martin and the design team worked closely with the clients to ensure that all their design needs are met but also that there are plenty of design aspects which make the house a unique and beautiful place to live.
