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 MJ Construction, Mike and his team took the hassle out of our build and allowed us to create our dream living space. My perception has also been changed on what to expect from a building project. From start to finish they were professional, efficient and tidy, making it enjoyable and not stressful as imagined”.
