Mario and Lisa knew what they wanted and were well clued up on the benefits of custom build even before they came to see us. So much so that they had already compiled an ‘Ideas Book’ with examples of favoured designs and finishes to help them share the vision of their dream home.
They found us after falling in love with a six-bedroom home we had recently constructed nearby. Their own plot was located on the beautiful 260-acre Webb Estate, laid out at the end of the 19th Century to follow William Webb’s personal principle of ‘garden’s first’.
Once the couple were convinced we could deliver their vision, we provided them with a ‘one stop’ package and Fixed Price Build Contract. While the overall design of the house was highly contemporary, we needed to incorporate black timber beams on the front elevation in keeping with other ‘mock tudor’ houses in the road.
The house was designed on three levels, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms. A magnificent glass, oak and stainless steel staircase was commissioned, perfectly complemented by the full-length feature window.
With such firm ideas of what they wanted to achieve, Mario and Lisa were involved at every stage in the build process, never missing the weekly briefing meetings with our Site Manager.
Their pride and joy was the stunning anthracite grey and white gloss ALNO kitchen, incorporating aluminium bi-fold doors across the whole width of the rear, with a glazed canopy roof.
Outside, a walled patio area was constructed with rendered retaining walls and slate style patio slabs, beyond which we built steps leading to the gently sweeping garden.
We were mindful throughout that our clients had taken on a rental property and were focused on completing the build on time, which we successfully achieved, complete with a 10-year guarantee.
"Truly excellent service"
"Many thanks to Concept2. We couldn’t have wished for a more dedicated building team to build our new home. A truly excellent service from start to finish, professional, enthusiastic and responsible. This includes an exceptional Project Manager who went the extra mile to ensure our needs and wishes were accommodated and that the whole build ran smoothly and efficiently." – Mario and Lisa.
