Project Details

£1m to £1.99M

Within a Conservation Area, New Build, Sited in AONB


Alex Oliver Associates Ltd

1-3 Patford Street , CALNE , Wiltshire , SN11 0EF

A classical home designed for the modern day life of a young family and located on a very sensitive site in the village of Avebury: a UNESCO World Heritage Site, conservation area, area of outstanding natural beauty. Adjacent to listed buildings and in a sensitive archaeological area. The house portrays the drama, presence and symmetry of a classical building, whilst employing a simpler, pared back form of classical architecture. Features such as high ceilings, large windows admitting plenty of natural light and a double height entrance hall with sweeping staircase animate the interior. The house was Highly Commended in the Daily Telegraph & Homebuilding and Renovating Awards 2014.
