Paying homage to the quintessential English style, a country home will incorporate large square panelling, close vertical studding and rococo design. However, these aspects can be blended with modern design and are not always considered when coupled with vernacular trends.

The country home

The country home pays homage to the oak frame properties found in quintessential English towns and villages. Generally characterised by an internal and external exposed oak frame, these properties feature magnificent trusses and fully vaulted rooms.

Our extensive knowledge and experience across the UK enables us to design an oak frame that fits in with specific local architecture while meeting your own aesthetic requirements.

Overview

Various elements traditionally associated with this style can be brought into your design. These include the large square panelling of the West Midlands, the close vertical studding of the South and East and a rococo design associated with Cheshire and the North.

However, we tend to find these generalisations overlap in modern architecture and don’t take local traditions into account. We will work with you to understand what elements you want to incorporate to give your home its unique country style.
