This is a new build house, located in Itchenor, facing onto Chichester Harbour. The house has a brick plinth with rendered walls and sweet chestnut cladding over. The windows are framed in bronze and the main roof of the house is thatched by the local master thatcher, Chris Tompkins.
When the Clients came to Yeates Design they had been living in the existing thatched property on site for two years but they had outgrown the house and were not enjoying the small traditional living spaces. Yeates Design proposed a new more open plan style of living on the ground floor and rebuilt the house to suit the family's needs. A new annex building with a cedar shingle roof was also constructed to the side of the property.
