New Build Home Cheshire

Project Overview: Bell Meadow, a renowned housing developer specializing in unique architectural designs, embarked on a captivating project aimed at seamlessly blending modern comfort with the timeless allure of a traditional French farmhouse. This endeavour involved the construction of a new-build home characterized by its rustic charm and elegant simplicity, meticulously crafted to evoke the warmth and character of rural France. To bring this vision to life, Bell Meadow collaborated with John Knight Glass, a leading provider of bespoke glazing solutions, to create a stunning array of windows and doors that would enhance the home's aesthetic appeal and functionality.

The front elevation of the property features several arched Crittall screens, multiple timber windows and some smaller Crittall steel windows around the entrance. One of the main features is the double height arched Crittall screen in the centre of the building. As this is the south facing elevation it benefits from direct sunlight for most of the day, flooding the main hall with sunlight throughout the day a popular spot for the family's beloved dog.
