We were commissioned to build this luxurious five-bedroom split-level home in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire.
The project, one of our biggest to date at 420m2, was constructed using a custom-made timber frame, ensuring plenty of space for our client’s growing family.
The property, which boasts five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two kitchens, two living rooms and a garage, also features a statement staircase with glass balustrade and stainless-steel handrails that seamlessly integrates the two levels of the property.
The layout of the home creates an open feel with intuitive design used to break up open spaces, whilst maintaining the flow of the open-plan areas. The inclusion of a double-sided fireplace creates a subtle divide through the spacious open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen areas.
The extensive master bedroom includes an ensuite and private balcony offering stunning views of the rural landscape.
For this project, we needed to ensure the whole property was airtight to allow the implementation of a Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery system. The energy-efficient system provides filtered air into the property whilst reusing a large portion of the energy already used to heat the home. Preparations included the installation of a vapour-control layer to encase the whole house prior to plaster boarding. Additional sealing was also required around every window, door, pipe and wire.
The property also features underfloor heating throughout to keep the large home warm during the cooler months.
The exterior is finished with a unique combination of render, timber cladding and stone, resulting in a stunning property that complements the rural surroundings.
