This replacement dwelling occupies a stunning south facing rural site, overlooking the Orwell Estuary, to the south east of Levington Village. Located a close proximity to Levington Marina, our clients saw this as the perfect relocating opportunity to exercise their passion and interest in sailing. The successful design centres around the creation of a stunning first floor living room with oak feature trusses and full height glazing, providing panoramic southerly views, in addition the master bedroom and study with two external balconies provided different view points of the river.
Externally the house closely follows the scale, mass and proportions of its immediate neighbour to the east, but with a contemporary interpretation with the introduction of panoramic glazing, sliding folding glazed partitions, verandah and brise soleil. Using handmade soft red brickwork, natural slate and clear finished cedar, the house created a mature, harmonious composition within the Suffolk countryside.
