Private new build house
Petersfield, Hampshire, South Downs National Park
A stunning new build house to replace a tired sixties bungalow. Built to specification for a local GP. The form of the house was partly led by historic covenants on the site which restricted the build dimensions and also the client desire to maximise views out to the natural surroundings.
The original bungalow had been built in an old sand quarry in an attractive part of Petersfield. Whilst the site offered plenty of potential the bungalow was past its sell by date!
In order to limit environmental impact and reduce costs we opted to re-use the existing foundations and ground slab with a minimal amount of engineering to achieve this.
A side entrance takes you into the middle of the plan and into a two storey light filled atrium. This leads to all the ground floor rooms and up to the galleried first floor landing. Four bedrooms, an ensuite and a family bathroom lead from the landing.
The ground floor has a large lounge, downstairs cloakroom, study and a large kitchen diner. French doors open out to the rear garden and an adjoining annex houses storage and a utility.
A feature of the house is the large roof dormer which allows for wall to wall windows in the bedrooms and bathrooms on that elevation. The idea here was to look out onto the greenery present along the rim of the old quarry.
