    Perry Pear Orchard is an exceptionally rare opportunity to build a Passivhaus, planning permission having been granted under the isolated house in the countryside paragraph 55 of the National Planning Authority framework. This results in an incredibly rare plot and opportunity to create what is a modern masterpiece providing extremely versatile open plan living in a building which will sit harmoniously within its natural surroundings enjoying the exceptional rolling countryside of the North Cotswolds.

    The design is one that sits low within its landscape, the site being gently sloping which enhances natural light and views in all aspects of the build throughout the predominantly open plan living space.

    Seymour-Smith Architects Husband and wife team Chris and Helen Seymour – Smith are a force to be reckoned with regarding exceptional passivhaus builds in rural locations. They create distinctive projects from a unique creative dialogue with each of their clients.

    Following the success of their own home and office, Hill Barn & Underhill House, which was filmed for Channel 4’s Grand Designs, they are increasingly specialising in houses built to the German passivhaus standard, as well as responding to many challenging planning situations.

    Planning Application Reference: 14/00798/FUL

    The site is well screened by many mature deciduous trees and established hedging on both the north east and western boundaries. The site which was formerly an agricultural field has been laid to permanent pasture and has a number of fruit trees including a Perry Pear.

    The site requires extensive landscaping as part of the build process but is an opportunity to create a natural garden which gradually merges into the surrounding woodland and countryside. Accessed via a farm track (which will be tarmacked at the end of the build process).
