Cutting edge design, exceptional attention to detail and advanced sophisticated technology are at the forefront of these Sabatini Homes built and Adrian James designed houses. These features combined give a unique and new level of the highest standard of modern living in Oxford
On an architecturally significant landscape previously designed by Clough Williams-Ellis the two houses are positioned in a leafy private setting on Cumnor Hill. From the outside these houses are designed to be simple, majestic, barn-like forms. The design intention was to keep them unencumbered, without any wings or annexes, using timeless, tactile materials, but expressed in a sleek contemporary manner: pure, unfussy, minimal. The houses sit into the natural landscape seamlessly flowing from one level to another.
On the inside the houses are all about space, light and the journey through the home: The route from the front door stepping down with the slope and arriving in a breath-taking double-height family space, flooded with natural light. These houses are designed fully to engage with the outdoors, so every room on both floors has huge glazed openings for maximum light and view. There is a generosity to the scale of the spaces, the height of the ceilings and the expanse of the windows. Furthermore, technologically advanced and future proofed these houses fully utilise smart home technology for simple contemporary living.
Ellis and Clough House have been constructed by Sabatini Homes only using the very best local master craftsman. Bespoke throughout and with many items built on site the houses only use the finest handcrafted materials from suppliers we can trust. Tried and tested the material palette seamlessly flows throughout the houses with a knowledge that the materials and finish of the houses are designed to last.
