The Logie 6

The Logie 6 timber frame home won the prestigious Daily Telegraph Housing Design Award for traditional houses in 2009.
This Scots Baronial country mansion with 8 bedrooms, granny flat, large living room and farmhouse kitchen, double height dining hall and games room was designed to sit on the fabulous site of an 18th century mansion on which access was from the middle floor, In this new house this is by way of an enclosed bridge which acts as a vestibule with port-cochere at basement level for the service entry. Its long frontage enabled us to ensure that almost every room in the house faced the marvellous views to South and West. The whole was completed with a matching garage with service flat over. Both have been carefully detailed to reflect country houses of that era but with modern levels of the sustainable environmentally-friendly needs of the 21st century.

from a back door opening off the arched port cochere below the bridge.
