Delamere Homes: Yew Tree Court, Poulton
Yew Tree Court is an exclusive collection of just eight oak-frame properties set within some of Cheshire’s most beautiful countryside. The original 1880s barns were designed by John Douglas and have the typical intricate brickwork and mullioned windows associated with classic Grosvenor Estate architecture. Delamere Homes has cleverly converted these into four unique homes, retaining all the original features but with a distinctly contemporary twist inside. Alongside them are the four non-traditional barns which were built in the 1930s.
With bespoke kitchens, sleek bathrooms and an abundance of unique character features, Yew Tree Court is an incomparable development illustrating superb design.
“We were delighted at being nominated and thrilled to have won the Property Developer of the Year 2008, Concept For Living award,” said Louise Norris, co-director of Delamere Homes.
“We are a family business and take pride in offering a very personal service, taking special attention to every detail of the design and creation of our homes, for the benefit of the people who will live there. We are always being told we are special, but it is good to be officially recognised by Concept For Living and the panel of judges at this year’s event.
“Our properties are always built in quiet peaceful locations, with superb views, but also easy access to life’s essentials: good schools, shops and restaurants. We know just how important it is to get the balance right.
The same attention to detail is applied to planning and designing the site: from the underground garages which allow unobstructed views across the
open countryside; the simply stunning oak helical staircases which span over three floors; to the state-of-the-art electronic glazed roof panels which allow light to flood through the barns.
“We are especially proud of the incredible oak frame structure which forms the heart of the building and creates instant character and charm to each house. We wanted to create something very different, a group of totally unique properties for a unique setting and we’re happy that we’ve achieved that.” Visit: www.delamerehomes.co.uk
