Ursula's Garden

A new cottage on a small site enclosed by a tall hedge in Constantine Bay. The design is inspired by the client’s love of the work of C A Voysey. The 4 bedroom house uses the roof space to accommodate extra bedrooms and the dormer windows reduce the mass of the roof.  Privacy is maintained by the first floor windows being below the well established grisselina hedge.

  • boasts high levels of insulation 
  • an air source heat pump
  • natural slate roof
  • built in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)

Ursula's Garden has been featured in Self Build and Design magazine   You can read the article here.

Ursula's Garden is available for holidays through Cole Rayment and White here.

Completed in 2010.
