Completed in 2011, The Old Glebe is a development of seven luxury residences in a woodland location in the sought-after village of Quorn in Charnwood, Leicestershire. The houses are sensitively designed in a Georgian style to complement the existing streetscene, and range from three-bedroom semi-detached units to five-bedroom villas with detached double garages complete with studio accommodation over.
The development is characterised by attention to detail, with a subtle variety of materials and traditional detailing throughout the site. Walls are in a variety of bricks and render, roofs are plain tile and slate. The roofs vary from deep overhanging eaves with painted rafter feet to brick corbels, there are gabled, hipped and square dormers, and individually designed door surrounds. Boundary treatments, paving materials and planting are carefully planned and to a very high specification.
The houses were designed to exceed Building Regulations standards, incorporating rainwater harvesting and solar hot water technology. Internal specifications are to a very high standard including bespoke designer kitchens fitted by local craftsmen.
