Stephenson Studio and Aboda complete £1.15m hillside home

  • Comment

Stephenson Studio and Aboda Living have completed this five-bed house on the side of Bollin Valley in Cheshire

The 450m² collaborative design sits on a south-facing plot which slopes steeply from front to back. 

Using the incline, the architects have created high volume living spaces overlooking the garden, and open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas have internal timber sliding doors and shutters allowing the space to be divided.

A grey stone plinth extends to the rear of the property, creating level access from all living areas to the terrace.

Rooflights throughout the house provide natural light.

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 with the arrival of former Stephenson Studio architect Justin Risley - the project architect on the £1.15m house.
