Cherryholt Lane

About the project

Situated on a tree-lined lane in East Bridgford, this project involves the demolition of an old family home to make way for the construction of a new family home.

3 generations of the same family will be accommodated and so an annex has been incorporated that will allow the family to co-habit while having definable and private space.

I designed the home to take advantage of the enlarged surrounding gardens and the path of the sun through the sky to provide well daylit interiors and open connections to the garden areas.

Key Features

– New build home for three generations on a family

– Self contained annex attached to the main house

– Open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area connected to the rear garden

– Large areas of glass for ample daylight

A message from the client

“John Morris is the real ‘Welsh Wizard’. He is probably a terrible footballer for those of you that understand the reference, but he is truly an exceptional architect. We genuinely feel blessed and lucky to have secured the services of such a talented, creative, sensitive and commercially astute architect.

However, there is nothing lucky about what John does or what John creates. For anyone yet to embark on the process of a self-build, it is stressful, it is difficult, it is challenging, but ultimately very rewarding. Key to success (and remaining sane) are the professionals that will be engaged on the project and John is the consummate professional.

His creativity and ideas are fantastic and his ability to transform concepts into visual designs that can be shared with you through the latest CAD packages is incredibly helpful. But it is not just his creativity as an architect that makes him such a valuable partner on your project it is his experience and guile to support and secure the planning application (often not easy) and his commerciality and attention to detail in respect to supporting or managing the process of the build itself.

He is personable, available and genuinely cares about you and the success of your project. We cannot recommend John highly enough and I feel fortunate that we were able to engage his services on building our house.

Not that we have any intention of ever doing it again(please don’t let that put you off) but if we were, then we would only want to do it with one Architect and that one Architect would be John Morris – AKA the ‘Welsh Wizard’”

Mr & Mrs Powell

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
