Large open-plan living

Dorset Barn

Designed by architects Willmore Iles, this unique, large 5 bed design has proven to be one of Habitat First Group’s most popular designs at Silverlake. The distinctive tiled pitched roof with intelligently positioned rooflights, triple-height void and full height curtain glazing above the dining area allowing natural light to flood in. The large open-plan living area has an almost entirely glass façade, connecting the living area to the outdoors and giving it a spacious, airy feel.

Award-winning design

Sun House

The four-bed Sun House, designed by Richard Reid Associates has won many awards. This property offers a large open-plan living area on the first floor which has a balcony on either end of the property, allowing natural light to flood in. The second floor offers a mezzanine level, ripe for customising and a unique space from which to enjoy the beautiful, elevated views. The design has won many awards over the years and is a truly unique holiday home. Available as a 4 or a 5 bed design.
