Great Oaks, Newbury

This new build home is situated on a beautiful steeply sloping garden site in Hampshire. 

Surrounded by mature oak trees, the designs include a main house of brick and render, and a series of oak framed structures designed to flood the house with light and maximize views out to the surrounding landscape. 

Principal living spaces are orientated towards the garden views at the rear, including an open plan kitchen and dining space which are interconnected via sliding pocket doors to a generous living room benefitting from dual aspect, leading on to a single storey orangery, overlooking the rear garden and fields to the south. Each room opens onto the rear terrace which spans the width of the house, with smaller plateaus and planted areas stepping down the hill. 

Upper floors include a spacious master suite with oak framed gable and first-floor roof terrace, walk-in dressing space and ensuite bathroom, as well as guest suites with Juliet balconies at first floor and bedrooms benefitting from skylights and dormers within the roof space. 

The building has been designed close to Passivhaus standards which is airtight and highly insulated, including triple glazed windows and doors, and renewable technology with photovoltaics for solar energy and battery storage, air-source heat pumps and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, resulting in a very energy efficient and sustainable dwelling.
