My Favourite Home by Planning & Technical Director, Steven Bateman

We have built hundreds of homes in many locations over the years. Recently we asked each of the Directors to chose one home that stands out as being a particular favourite. Steven Bateman, Planning & Technical Director, chose a home built in Great Billing back in 2005. It was a one-off property, built within the grounds of an existing cottage in a pretty Northamptonshire village.

Let it never be said that Steve doesn't like a challenge. Quite the opposite in fact, as constructing his favourite home was filled with complexities:

"It was a one-off home on a site that was extremely elevated from the road with some protected trees that we needed to accommodate. As well as the difference in levels, there was very little space available to unload materials, but it was the difficulties in developing this house that added to its appeal for me.

The finished property is split level, with the garaging at road level, and was constructed out of ironstone with a slate roof to match the existing houses. As with many properties from Grace Homes, the overall look of the house is traditional, but with some contemporary twists such as the fully glazed sloping roof over the staircase.
