the barn, chobham
This new build house, constructed using a green oak frame, is situated in a semi-rural location just outside Chobham in Surry. mk40 architects worked closely with the timber framed supplier to ensure that the design of the house worked harmoniously with the timber frame structure.
The design and orientation of the house makes the most of the large plot, countryside views and orientation of the sun. The integral oak framed design of the house enables the oak to be incorporated into the interior design of each of the rooms, giving a contemporary country feel throughout.
On the ground floor there is a good combination of open plan living and family rooms, with large glazed wall sections, along with more formal separate dining and sitting rooms. On the first floor there is an impressive landing area along with 4 bedrooms and a luxurious bathroom with walk-in shower and a free-standing bath.
