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 house is another variation upon the generously proportioned LH502 Longhouse, this time adding a ‘lean-to’ rear extension. There are two extension options: the first comprising a wind-lobby and utility area, while the second option creating a much larger kitchen, larder and external store.
Compared to the LH402P, this house’s extra width makes the dramatic double-height living area 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.
