  • The Concept of Paragraph 55

    In March 2012 the Government set out in Paragraph 55 of the National Planning Policy Framework a policy to allow the development of exceptional dwellings in open countryside.

    Paragraph 55 states ‘to promote the sustainable development in rural areas, housing should be located where it will enhance and maintain the vitality of rural communities’.

    Planning policy generally seeks to resist one off dwellings in open countryside except where there is a need for a rural worker, the use of an existing building or enabling development to secure heritage assets, however, under Paragraph 55 the construction of a dwelling of exceptional outstanding quality or innovative nature which helps raise the standard of design in its rural area can be permitted.

    Design Philosophy

    The design of the dwelling at Lovells Wood follows organic architecture principles. The building is designed to integrate seamlessly into its surroundings drawing its form and inspiration from the character of the site and to reflect the harmony found in nature.

    The roof has been inspired by the form of an oak leaf and tree canopy with its curved lobes and wing clad with oak wood shingles which will create a highly textured surface similar to oak tree bark.

    The façade is designed to reflect the sharp lines of processed wood at a saw mill relating to the surrounding commercial aspect of the woodland.

    Taking further inspiration from wood, the interior layout of the house is inspired by growth rings and knots in tree bark.

    The design of the building offers the opportunity to incorporate green technologies such as ground source heating, rainwater collection systems and thermal storage as well as drawing the building materials from the surrounding estate and wider local area.

    The dwelling approved at Lovells Wood truly meets the four key design tests of a dwelling set out in Paragraph 55.

    1. The dwelling is truly outstanding and innovative.

    2. The design of the building reflects the highest standards in architecture.

    3. The building and landscape design will significantly enhance its immediate setting.

    4. The design of the building is sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area.

    CGI of External Appearance

  • Approximate Position of Site

  • Accommodation

    The main entrance leads onto a grand hall and main lounge area views onto which are maintained from the upper floors.

    At the centre of the home is a fireplace located in the snug, coupled with the kitchen these are considered to be the core of the settlement with curved partitions reflecting the rings of a tree and the initial ‘L’ shaped construction imitating the shape of a tree branch.

    The first floor comprises three bedrooms all with en suite facilities with views provided over the main hall from the study and a further snug centred by a fireplace.

    On the second floor you are placed in the canopy of the trees.

    The master bedroom and bedroom four both have en suite facilities and views out onto the woodland from a height.

    There is a further snug with fireplace, again with views over the grand hall.

    The accommodation of the house extends to just over 9,000 sq ft (865 sq m).

    Outside is a three car garage measuring 1,000 sq ft (100 sq m) which is raised and blended into the ground with wooden cladding. The gardens encompass the form of a tree’s growth rings with shallow bodies of water and shade tolerant wild flowers and grasses which cover the woodland floor.

    The driveway extends out from the house and is lined with native trees and wild flowers.

    The site has a total area of 53 acres, this presents a rare opportunity to purchase a site in open countryside with permission to construct a completely individual and exceptional dwelling near to Silverstone circuit.
