Pentre Uchaf


A family home that has a Scandavian influence, with functional spaces that complement outdoor (farming) lifestyle.

A private house that has a strong Scandanivan influence, and takes on some unqiue features found in houses in the surrounding Leighton estate, features such as a 50 degree roof pitch.

The orientation of the house is to the North looking over the Shropshire Plains. The house is set into the hillside and will provide shelter from the prevailing south-westerly wind and rain.

The house will be clad in redwood cedar from Powys sawmills and sourced from local woodlands. It is a naturally resistant timber and will silver over time, blending into the environment.

A composite aluminium and timber window has been selected for its low maintenance and good U-value. Reclaimed Welsh slate has been chosen for the roof for its quality and character.
