Ty Mynydd House

The Brief: To create a brand new luxury dwelling with modern cutting edge features.

Our company purchased this building plot in Rhiwbina, Cardiff, with planning consent for a large modern dwelling in 2008, and work to create Ty Mynydd House started immediately.

The plot was long and narrow and ran between two existing dwellings so accessing the site was a challenge from the start. We worked through the winter and battled the elements to complete the ground works and start the block work. During the spring of 2009 the external development was complete and works on the internal design commenced. We always envisaged this house as having a luxury feel and an edginess to the interior, and this image was successfully carried throughout the house by using sumptuous fabrics, luxury flooring, high-end bathroom fittings & bespoke furniture.

The design of this house was very exciting because it allowed us to work with and install cutting edge materials, high tech electronics, an integrated sound system & luxury Miele kitchen appliances. We also used more traditional materials such as Welsh slate and stone to compliment the surrounding properties and landscape. The main bedrooms were located on the lower ground floor, and had access to the garden via bi-folding doors. Large expanses of glass allowed light to percolate through different areas of the property, in particular, the midlevel kitchen, dinner and open plan living room. The master suite with its exposed beams, dressing room and en-suite bathroom was situated on the top floor and benefited from the wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

This was the first new build project that MJ Construction had undertaken, and it was a great learning curve for us as a company to produce a high end one of a kind luxury property.

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.
