NEW BUILD FAMILY HOME
OXFORDSHIRE VILLAGE

Located in a pretty Oxfordshire village, this new build family home has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a lounge and a study as well as a large open plan kitchen and dining area with a snug. Outside there is a detached double garage and log store.

It was built on the site of an old chalet style bungalow that had to be demolished before construction of the new house could begin. The old bungalow contained asbestos, so WG Carter had to totally encapsulate it before safe demolition could take place.

The new house is constructed using traditional foundations with a beam and block floor joists. It is built of handmade red clay bricks laid in Flemish bond to match the style of other older houses in the village.

The energy efficiency of the house was key major factor, after the design and layout. It has engineered joists on the upper floors that incorporate the services. This meant that under floor heating, powered by an electric air source pump, could be installed not only on the ground floor but also on the first and second floors. The external envelope of the house is highly insulated with wide cavity wall insulation to make it suitable for air source heating.

The bespoke fitted kitchen at the rear of the property is of a single storey construction with a glass roof lantern to allow the light to flood in. It has sliding bi-fold doors that open out onto the patio and both the dining room and kitchen windows are also bi-fold to maximise the views over the garden. The kitchen includes an Aga and a large island work unit with a sink and breakfast bar seating.

The 4 bathrooms were all fitted out with bespoke sanitary ware and fittings and stone flooring was installed throughout the majority of the house.
