This exclusive development is located in the village of Trull, Somerset, nestled between the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park. The scheme consists of a range of elegant four- and five-bedroom houses, all built from traditional materials.
Situated only 2.5 miles from Taunton, Trull is a charming village boasting many listed buildings and sites of historic interest. It was imperative from the outset that these new-build homes should be a sympathetic addition to their heritage-rich surroundings. In keeping with the varied style of properties in the immediate vicinity and in the wider Trull/Staplehay area, Reed Holland designed all the houses in a traditional manner, incorporating steep roof profiles, overhanging eaves and verges, double barge boards and decorative exposed purlins and wall plates. Traditional materials common to the area, including facing brick, natural stone and render walls and natural slate, plain tiles, double roman tiles and pan tiles to roofs, were also used and reflect the variety of design in the local area.
There are 30 dwellings in all, featuring a variety of combinations to provide individual designs, again mirroring the eclectic style of existing properties in and around Amberd Lane.
While blending expertly into the historic village, the homes nevertheless are built to a high specification. All claim excellent energy efficiency credentials, featuring underfloor heating in en-suites and bathrooms, double-glazed windows throughout, and cavity wall and loft insulation installed to NHBC standards.
