The question of whether investing in an oak frame yields resale value often arises. This compact yet inviting 4-bedroom house, sold for over 1.5 million, stands as a testament to the appeal of oak frames in elevating the marketability of an otherwise ordinary residence. The use of sawn oak cladding for the external walls, when skillfully executed, boasts a potential lifespan exceeding a century.
Inside, beamed ceilings lend a charming farmhouse aesthetic to the kitchen, complete with an ‘unfitted’ island unit and Aga, creating a warm family gathering hub. The open-plan layout seamlessly connects the elegant kitchen, entrance hall, dining area, and lounge. The conservatory-style glazed section infuses the interior with abundant natural light.
Innovatively, oak rafters glazed with a ‘Vitral’ patent system illuminate the stairwell and landing, showcasing the thoughtful design. Comprehensive oak frame drawings are accessible for this and various other projects.
