Chestnut Tree

About the project

My Clients have a secluded plot of land where they want to build their forever home. Located in a conservation area with height limitations, this design was developed to provide them with the space they required while maintaining a large wrap around garden and drive.

The house layout is designed to create a sense of arriving home as soon as you pass the entrance gates. A full height entrance hall with a suspended stairs welcomes you into the house. A wide corridor with full height glazing then leads you into the vaulted ceiling kitchen/dining/day lounge, which in turn leads out onto an external patio areas covered by an extended roof.

The garden is linked to the house by large areas of glass and folding sliding doors to create amazing views out from the interior.

"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
