Our sleek Longhouse range of one-and-a-half storey kit houses have been inspired on the traditional architectural form of Scotland and northern Europe. Their linear form allows them to slot easily into the landscape while, internally, superfluous divisions such as a formal reception hall have been eliminated to create an airy, open-plan layout.
Despite its modest footprint, this two-bedroom house has been designed to maximise living space and promote a sense of openness and space. The kitchen/dining area opens to a dramatic double-height vaulted living room, where a wood-burning stove is the focal point. The overall effect is stunning.
Large areas of glazing open on to a deck, bringing the outside in. Ideally, the living room windows will frame the views while making best use of passive solar gain throughout the year. The downstairs bedroom is conveniently located next to the shower-room, and generous storage is provided.
A feature stair from the dining room leads to the attic space and the second bedroom, which enjoys twin roof-lights, plus built-in drawers and cupboards. There are generous hanging cupboards on the landing. The bathroom is carefully designed with provision for a bath and a large shower. (As with all our designs, the bathroom and kitchens can be supplied by HebHomes.)
There is scope to amend the design – for example to provide more storage or separate living space – to suit your particular needs. This model can also be provided as a timber frame house upon request. Please see the bespoke page for more details, or contact us to start the conversation.
