Lantern House


Project Details

£3m to £4.99M

New Build, Sited in Greenbelt land


Concept Eight Architects

E S C House , South Road , WEYBRIDGE , Surrey , KT13 9DZ , United Kingdom

This beautiful site sits in Tewin, in the the heart of the East Hertfordshire Greenbelt with unobstructed views across the countryside and down to London. The main house is arranged in two wings with family rooms to the North and a formal room to the South. The southern wing is set forward on the site to enable the double height hallway to open up to the rear garden. This features a spectacular two storey high sash window allowing for the owners to enjoy the very special view. The key feature in the master bedroom is a dramatic corner-less lantern window as a modern twist on a traditional turret. The design takes precedent from elegant Georgian proportions whilst maintaining a contemporary and understated approach to detailing.
