Parc y Coed

The Brief: To completely transform a dated 1960’s house into an ultra modern family home. To build and create bespoke features such as a living Sedum roof, and landscape both front and rear gardens.

We love transforming houses, and Parc-Y-Coed has to be one of our favourite redesign projects. The design for this house was created by architect Barry Mayled, who we have had the pleasure of working alongside in the past. The brief was to take this tired dated house, and push it into realms of being a modern hip family home for our young cosmopolitan clients.

We modernised this house by completely remodelling the rear, extending the profile of the house, installing large bi-fold doors and by creating a large open plan kitchen/dinning and living space. The kitchen, with its large island, and “space ship like” appliances compliment this uber chic living space complete with cutting edge modern furniture. Throughout the downstairs luxury wood flooring overlays underfloor heating, and the bespoke handmade staircase carries this beautiful wood theme upstairs to the landing.

Upstairs houses a luxury master suite with beautiful bathroom, and ample wardrobe space. Three further good size bedrooms were created with an adjoining main bath and shower room. New windows inject life into the front of the house, and an innovative living Sedum roof graces the front of the property. This adds texture and interest, and compliments the large white walls and dark window frames perfectly.

The front garden was landscaped to great a walkway which winds perfectly up a small slope towards the house. Expert planting of vegetation makes this front garden both beautiful to look at and practical to care for given the unpredictability of the Welsh weather!

From start to finish this project was a joy to undertake and we loved working with our clients. We really enjoy unveiling the final result and making peoples design dreams come true.

I would highly recommend Mike, and his team at MJ Construction, they took the hassle out of our build and allowed us to create our dream house… and furthermore, enjoy the whole experience! Mikes flair, passion and enthusiasm shone through immediately, and he had so many different ideas as to what we could achieve. The real selling point for us was that Mike could project manage the entire build, including dealing with planning permission, the building inspector and furthermore, his team were fully up to date with all the latest heath and safety regulations which was important to us. We felt at ease with mike, and that we were in good hands. We would highly recommend Mike and his team at MJ Construction to anyone looking to achieve a truly unique living space. His attention to detail and flawless finish is second to none and we are so proud of the home that we created together.
