WEST MILL ROAD, COLINTON
New build four bedroom home, open plan double-height room accommodating the kitchen, dining and living areas, interior courtyard and large south facing garden, integral garage and workshop.
Our brief was to create a family home with charm and character on a large, leafy plot in Colinton, a suburb of Edinburgh situated four miles south west of the city centre. Inspired by the beautiful architectural style of homes in Southern Italy, we chose an unusual design centred around a light-filled, open courtyard.
The courtyard provides an outdoor oasis of calm at the heart of the home. Encircled by glass, it is accessible through the living areas and master bedroom. The individuality and Italian style of this property was further enhanced by the oak framed windows and doors, a bespoke winding staircase, underfloor heating and opulent ‘venetian-style’ flooring.
A magnificent, double-height open plan kitchen, dining and living area created a welcoming, contemporary social space that can be enjoyed by all the family. The flexibility of the design is reflected in the creation of additional space for a workshop, games area and cosy snug. A generous, south-facing garden with a beautiful tiled patio completes the stylish Italian theme of this unique, sumptuous family home.
