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 new design takes a similar form to the very popular LH402 Longhouse, the main difference being the wider plan, which allows for a larger dining space, living room and second bedroom. Like the earlier model, the service areas form a spine running down the rear wall of the house, leaving the living and bedroom areas uncluttered.
Because of this extra width, the dramatic double-height living area is even more spectacular; its vaulted ceiling and wood-burning stove form 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.
Two bedrooms (one upstairs, one down) enjoy their own en-suites, while the third and fourth have access to a shower-room on the ground floor. Upstairs rooms are reached by a feature stair leading from the dining area. With twin roof-lights, plus built-in drawers and cupboards, these upper rooms are functional and airy. (As with all our designs, the bathroom and kitchens can be supplied by HebHomes.) The fourth bedroom is sometimes used as a gallery space overlooking the living room.
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.
