2014 • Private

Pitchcombe is a private design and build development located in the heart of the Cotswolds. Aqua sourced the land for the client who then purchased it for redevelopment. On-site originally stood a dilapidated bungalow which has been demolished in order to build a new two storey home for the owners.

Our design team worked closely alongside the clients’ architect throughout the entire planning process. We integrated every aspect of their aspirations into the design to create their own individual, bespoke home. The client put a major emphasis on the new house being sustainable. This was achieved through the use of solar panels to heat the hot water. Underfloor heating was chosen as an alternative to radiators as it is a much more efficient and cost-effective method for heating a building.

Pitchcombe was a luxury three bedroom home overlooking the rolling hills of the Stroud Valleys, surrounded by natural beauty. One of the clients main desires was an indoor swimming pool, which was to include a water jet, enabling them to swim against the current. We facilitated this in a semi-underground room at the front of the property, which also included a terrace overlooking the rolling hills.

Development commenced in Spring 2012 was finally completed in October 2014.
