Cherry Tree is a large four-bedroom family home set in a woodland clearing on the outskirts of St Albans. The main house is 5,000 sq ft across two floors.
This Hertfordshire film & photo shoot location was designed by award winning Architects and influenced by the local surroundings and a contemporary rustic outside /inside living style with stylish interiors and detailing.
The house is laid out as an arrangement of rectangular forms to create a series of layers, courtyards and walkways forming living spaces surrounded by nature.
A series of brick columns support an external galleried walkway around the perimeter, at focal points there are covered external rooms that provide shelter whilst maintaining a strong connection with the woodland setting.
Above, a timber-clad first floor is arranged as an informal composition of overlapping roofs and terraces offering stunning views of the landscape.
