Claremont House

/ Surrey

A New Forever Home Led by Space, Light & Sustainable Principles.

Our clients purchased a 1930s neo-Tudor house set within a ½ acre of mature gardens.  With such a great situation and location, they were keen to create a forever home for their young family.  They decided to replace the existing building with a contemporary new home to accommodate their needs for space, open plan living and natural light. Designing to their own specification also meant they could create an energy efficient home, built and run on sustainable materials and systems.


The house design encompasses three floors, featuring living spaces on the ground floor, with bedrooms, a study, guest accommodation and gym on the first and second floors. The rooms are generously proportioned, giving flexibility for a variety of family activities and entertaining, and the use of floor-to-ceiling glazing means natural light fills the rooms, enhancing the overall sense of spaciousness.

The heart of daily life revolves around the integrated kitchen, dining, and living space, seamlessly extending into the garden through double-sided glazing. With a west-facing position, it's the perfect setting for evening barbecues and entertaining. A spacious pantry conveniently links to the utility room, while a double-height atrium hall connects to a wine room, study, formal sitting room, playroom, and cloakroom, providing a well-appointed, and impressive entrance to the home.

The finishes across the house have been meticulously crafted to the highest quality, including in the master suite which comprises bedroom, large dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The ambience is one of luxury and privacy, with wonderful views overlooking the garden.

Sustainably-Led and Energy Efficient.

The home incorporates sustainable technology, which was a key part of our client’s brief. The site was disconnected from mains gas, and replaced with an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) connected to wet Under Floor Heating (UFH) throughout. The 12kW heat pump also provides comfort cooling in warmer months as well as Domestic Hot Water (DHW). A large 8kW in-roof Solar PV Array reduces the home’s reliance on the electrical grid, and charges two Power Wall batteries which store electrical energy for the majority of the home’s consumption, including for the charging of the family's two Electrical Vehicles.

The house is designed and built to a high level of airtightness, and mechanically vented using a Mechanical Vent Heat Recovery System (MVHR), which extracts the heat from bathrooms and kitchens and dissipates heated fresh air back into habitable spaces. The mechanical and electrical services are controlled via a smart home system, ensuring that energy is utilised as efficiently as possible.
