Watcombe Cottage Nears Completion

Our new build house in Beckley near Rye is nearing completion. The site backs onto Flatropers woods and is surrounded on 3 sides by undulating open countryside. The house consists of a two storey wing with sleeping accommodation and a glazed link space through to a single storey wing with the open plan kitchen, living and dining spaces. The plans also include a start gazing platform and a camera obscura in one of the children’s bedrooms.

The house has fantastic views and the L shape design creates a private south facing courtyard to one side with a larger more open garden to the other side. The building is clad in British rough sawn cedar and combined with cedar shingles. Its is extremely well insulated and sealed and heated using an Air Source Heat pump resulting in a very sustainable building with very low long term running costs.

Final completion of the house is due by mid December 2018 and landscaping works will begin early Spring 2019 – completion photos to follow shortly so watch this space…
