Background

Cross Farm is a collection of thirty-one, 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes located in the picturesque village of Wedmore, Somerset. Carefully designed to fit in within what is a traditional English village, Cross Farm offers traditional homes with a contemporary twist, and luxurious open-plan living. With plenty of open space and footpaths and an orchard to the side of the development, these homes are perfect for those who want to be able to enjoy the great outdoors.

Situated in the heart of Wedmore, Cross Farm is a short walk away from the local high street, nearby to the local shops and amenities as well as the village school. In addition, the close proximity to the spectacular views of the Mendips and Cheddar Gorge and all else that Somerset has to offer make this an ideal place for a contemporary country home.

Brief

The client brief was for a contemporary, high quality alternative to the usual UPVC windows which are commonplace in new-build projects of this type across the country.  Their ethos is “different by design” and therefore something removed from normal expectations was required.  They were also looking for a cost-effective solution, and something which would stand the test of time to provide their homebuyers with peace of mind.

Buying Drivers

Traditional with a modern edge, large glass areas with minimal sightlines (suitable for check reveal installation), robust and high quality sliding doors, simple and straightforward to install onsite, price point less than £250/m2, longevity of finishes, intuitive operation.  Traditional looking aluminium grooved panel entrance doors.
