Habitat House

Designed to last 1,000 years

The Habitat House is a ground-breaking design by award-winning architects Featherstone Young. With a distinctive wildflower sloping roof, it blends in beautifully with the natural environment. These homes provide the very best in sustainable luxury and are designed to last 1,000 years.

The Corner House

BLURRING THE LINES BETWEEN INDOOR AND OUTDOOR LIVING

Avant-Garde architecture with room to grow. The cubic design of the Corner House combines minimalist simplicity with cutting edge contemporary construction to deliver a space that allows your family room to grow. Strategically placed roof lights flood the house with natural light and large open plan living areas offer a sociable space to relax and enjoy the far reaching views across the nature reserve.

WATER GARDEN

LARGE FULL LENGTH ROOF TERRACE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF NATURE

This new exciting Water Garden design by architect Andy Ramus focuses on renewable energy resources and low energy bills. Built with structural insulated panels (SIPs) and hand-finished by local tradesmen, it is one of the most efficient designs that Habitat First Group has launched. The feature roof terrace is accessed internally by an electric roof light which also floods the first floor with light.­

Skydeck

Sustainability meets contemporary living with 360 degree views

The Skydeck, designed by Willmore Iles, represents the perfect marriage of contemporary architecture, eco-friendly construction and outstanding connectivity with the great outdoors. The full length roof terrace with full glass frontage is accessed by a hydraulic roof light and offers stunning views over the lakes and the nature reserve beyond.

Sun House

Habitat First’s most popular designs

The award-winning four-bed Sun House has been one of Habitat First Group’s most popular designs thanks to its large open-plan living area and mezzanine floor, which allows owners to customise the space according to their needs. The design has won Best Small House in recent years.

THE BARN

A VERY SPACIOUS, AIRY FEEL

Designed by architect Willmore Iles, the distinctive Cotswolds tiled pitched roof, gable ends and an almost entirely glass frontage combine to give the Barn a very spacious, airy feel. This flexible design can be configured to suit small and large families. The Barn can be finished in cedar, stone and/or render.

LIGHTHOUSE

THE FIRST HABITAT FIRST DESIGN TO MEET PASSIVHAUS PERFORMANCE

Designed by architect Jerry Tate and constructed from structural insulated panels (SIPs), these three and four bedroom homes are clad in natural larch timber, clay brick and recycled rubber roof tiles. The Light House is the first Habitat First Group design to meet Passivhaus standards and code level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

THE CRESCENT

Two Bedroomed cottages in the Crescent

The Crescent is the centre piece of Beaumont Village, Silverlake. With contemporary spacious ground floor living opening onto southerly facing decks and gardens. Full width first floor Balconies accessed from both bedrooms enjoy the panoramic views to the coast. The Crescent is the perfect place for a family to relax into the unique Dorset countryside. Architectural excellence married with local stone and cedar cladding give your family their own grand design.

THE COTTAGES

Three and Four bed Detached Cottages

The Cottages draw inspiration from and reflect the local vernacular. The detail, scale and proportions promote a unique West Dorset character at the heart of the village, creating a sense of place. The materials used come from a traditional palette of local stone, timber, render and tiles. The Cottages elegantly integrate traditional architectural features with contemporary interpretations creating a harmonious aesthetic. The internal spaces offer a charming and relaxed haven.

The Hide

A QUIET HIDE-AWAY WITH CALMING VIEWS

The Hide is exactly what its name suggests; a tranquil retreat where one can disconnect and enjoy the simple pleasures in life like the morning song of the nightingale. The original concept was designed as a nirvana away from the main house, floating over the lake gazing out at nature, however, our two storey, four-bedroom Hide design offers those principles on a grander scale with a large open plan living area, spacious bedrooms, a generous amount of outdoor decking and a full glass façade to the lakeside, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Contemporary living meets outstanding natural beauty.

ORCHID HOUSE

AVANT-GARDE DESIGN AT ITS BEST

Orchid House is one of Habitat First Group’s Landmark houses inspired by the rare Bee Orchid flower found at the estate. The organic form is created from laminated veneer lumbar (LVL) ribs and clad with timber shingles (tiles). The camouflage pattern is burnt in to the timber. It was a design the late Jeremy Paxton was extremely passionate about and the Paxton family are keen on delivering this design at Silverlake.
