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.
This four-bedroomed version of the Longhouse takes a similar form to the smaller LH202P model, including the ‘lean-to’ extension containing a wind-lobby and utility area, but adds an additional bedroom to the attic space over the master bedroom.
The improved utility/cloak area, plus the larger kitchen/dining area – with more workspace and room for a larger table – adds to the practicality of this attractive design. The double-height living room, with its vaulted ceiling and wood-burning stove, forms the home’s natural focal point. Large areas of glazing open onto 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 master bedroom is easily large enough to accommodate an optional en-suite; alternatively, this room might be used as a TV or family room. The second downstairs bedroom is conveniently located next to the shower-room.
The upstairs bedrooms are each reached by a private stair, one leading from the dining area and the other from the main living room. With twin roof-lights, plus built-in drawers and cupboards, these are functional and airy. An upstairs bathroom, is carefully designed with provision for a bath and/or 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.
