The Retreat

This striking 2-bed detached property offers modern, stylish living with framed views of the great outdoors. Created with both family fun and rentability in mind, this holiday home design offers excellent value for money. The design is highly sustainable and uses ‘A’ rated energy materials, along with photovoltaic panels and an EV charger. Build time from 12 months. Also available as a 3-bed design.


The View

This charming two-storey timber-clad property draws inspiration from a minimalist cube design, featuring a unique corner cut-out creating recessed terraced areas on both levels. The bedrooms boast a secluded balcony, perfect for savouring a morning coffee with a view. Expansive picture windows and fully opening glazed doors provide breath-taking views and abundant opportunities to connect with the natural surroundings. The property is built with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) promoting sustainability in house construction by enhancing energy efficiency, resource efficiency, and durability, while also contributing to improved indoor air quality.


2-Storey Barn

Designed by architect Wilmore Iles, this design incorporates all the design features of the spacious, modern Barn spread over two floors. With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms this is now one of Habitat First Group’s most popular designs, the double-height void over the kitchen with strategically placed roof lights helps to bring the outside in and creates a strong connection with the outdoors.

Our 4 Bed Summer House design is full of country character and charm. Wrapped in timber and render with its eye-catching clean lines, incorporating large windows, open-plan spaces and a glazed gable end to fill the property with natural light. This property benefits from a first-floor balcony.
