New houses in the Cotswolds

Potter & Holmes have designed, constructed and sold a number of individual houses in the Cotswolds since 1999.

They are generally traditional in appearance externally but less so internally, with the following common features:

  • A structural strategy which allows the layout of the house to be adapted to the changing needs of family life through time.
  • Minimum dedicated circulation space, often with the main staircase part of a multi-storey atrium space incorporating the living room
  • Strong spatial interlinking between rooms to allow the house to be flexible.
  • An 'Annexe' which can be a used as a flat for teenagers or grandparents, a workspace, a home cinema or even tenanted.
  • Optimum use of space, with galleried bedrooms to allow the sloping roof void to be incorporated into habitable accommodation.
  • Well insulated Timber Frame clad in stone, timber or lime render.

These houses include:

  • May Lane, Dursley - 5 bedrooms with basement
  • Young's Orchard, Brimscombe - 5 bedrooms with annexe
  • roadreach, Edge - 5 bedrooms with annexe
  • Tythe House, North Woodchester - 5 bedrooms with workshop
  • Knowle Cottage, Cranham - 5 bedrooms with annexe
