ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2018

Project Detail

The Oaks, Rothley

Small Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2018 Finalist

A 1970/80s house in the stunning location of Charnwood Forest has been completely transformed with multiple extensions into a spectacular Tudor style home. Oak and oak framing features extensively and is immediately visible from first sight and within.

The impressiveness of the property is evident throughout. The oak has been distressed by hand to make it appear aged by the ravages of time and each of the hundreds of oak peg faces has been hand tooled to characterise them, testament to the intricate attention to detail and unique features bestowed upon this property.

Project Overview

The existing house has been cleverly incorporated into the new design, with every external and internal face characterised by period features.

The use of Swithland slate, decorative mottled red and blue slate finished pitch roofs, large over hanging eaves, gable features, and fine profile stone mullions has realised the desire to incorporate traditional materials with modern interventions, whilst utilising the local traditional materials palette.

The hallway and staircase have been reconfigured with spectacular styling to make them perfect for the property.

The interior design is breath taking and captures the essence of the house. Bespoke pieces and detailing add elements of fun to the traditional styling of the property and turn it into a plush family home.

The Oaks is a visual delight.
