JOHN WILLIAMS - OAKWRIGHTS DESIGNER

The wonderful plot of land acquired by these clients lay within the walled garden of a country house in Worcestershire. After the initial transformation of a stagnant pond into a live pool, John was put to task to design the contemporary oak-frame home that echoes the curve of the pool.
Accessed from an impressive oversized hallway the downstairs reception rooms are spacious and bright, taking advantage of the extraordinary setting, with glazed aspects toward the pool and gardens beyond. On the first floor, a top-lit half-galleried landing provides a home for a substantial library and leads to five spacious bedrooms, two of which boast en-suite facilities.
Oakwrights Architectural Designers were introduced to these clients with the style of house required, already placed firmly in their minds. John's task with this very individual home was to produce a design that would suit particular requirements, quite specifically to accommodate a young family.
The main body of the house is a storey and a half with three large bedrooms on the first floor. The vaulted family room and kitchen are the main focal points and are where the family spend most of their time. The full size basement below the house accommodates a luxurious home cinema and a children's play room.
