Aboda Living wins approval for £2m Cheshire home

  • Comment

Cheshire-based Aboda Living has gained planning permission for this new five-bed home that will replace a 1980s house on a backland plot in Hale Barns

The 600m² scheme will sit behind a contemporary ‘English garden wall’ which will act as a barrier from the entrance to the garden.

Designed around the entrance hall, the L-shaped house will edge the south-facing garden, and create an ‘inside/outside connection’

Aboda Living - North Road

The £1.6m design includes two feature walls; a hand-made brick wall which runs along the kitchen and family area, and a timber wall running to the rear of the living space.

Earlier this year, the scheme, in North Road, won the One-off House/unbuilt category at the relaunched Manchester Architects Awards.

Work will start at site next month.

High-end residential developers and architects Aboda Living, was founded by husband and wife team Mark and Lisa Oakes in 2006. The company was recently bolstered by the arrival of former stephenson:ISA architect partner Justin Risley.
