This beautiful new build property in the Essex countryside has been carried out by Ian Rust. He owns and runs Struain Projects Ltd, a locally renowned property development company, specified for this project.
“This land belongs to the homeowners next door and was originally part of their driveway and garden. They also own a number of fields behind this plot, so with an excess of land on their hands, decided to develop a sympathetic new home here to then sell on” Mr Rust comments.
Complementing local architecture and neighbouring properties is always an important factor to take into consideration when building a home as it pays respect to the local area whilst enhancing it at the same time. With this in mind, all external aspects of this new home were planned with nearby properties in mind.
“I was originally thinking of a plain tiled roof, however the neighbours all have slate, so it felt only right that this property also had slate” Mr Rust explains. “The combination of the render and cladding finish was also selected to be in keeping with the other traditional properties in the village”.
Whilst Mr Rust opted for a traditional finish externally, internally he aimed for modern, comfortable living. The kitchen and bathrooms are all finished to a very high specification, and facilities such as underfloor heating and wireless sound link ready to enjoy in all rooms.
As a previous customer of Dale Joinery, Mr Rust had no hesitation when specifying the range for this project. “I really like the Dale products and they were perfectly suited for the high-end finish that I have been aiming for”.
Being a large property, a number of entrance doors, flush casement windows, French doors and bi-fold doors were specified. All are externally finished in a colour complementary to Farrow & Ball ‘Castle Gray’ perfectly complementing the render and cladding finish.
“Matt has been fantastic to deal with throughout. Everything from the initial quote through to the aftercare has been very efficient” Mr Rust comments.
This project began in November 2018 and with the final touches being completed now, the property is now on the market, with initial interest already a testament to the high-quality finish throughout, “within 2 weeks of us putting the house on the market, we had 5 visitors and an offer, so we fully expect this to be a quick sale” Mr Rust concludes.
