7-bay oak-framed garages

The team at Hardwoods Group worked closely with a luxury property developer to manufacture two uniquely designed 7-bay oak-framed garages.

Client Requirements

Our client for this project was an up-market housing developer from Cheshire. The brand-new luxury development required two uniquely designed 7-bay oak-framed garages.

This exceptional estate is surrounded by beautiful Cheshire countryside and set within the grounds of a Grade II listed hall dating from 1612. The oak garages will help serve the 24 new homes within the historic grounds.

In the words of the developer, “The Somerford Booths Hall Estate comprised the restoration of the magnificent Grade II* listed hall plus the construction of 24 fabulous new homes within its historic grounds. Set in 12.5 acres of rolling Cheshire countryside overlooking the River Dane, it provides a spectacular backdrop for the new homes. Many original features including ornamental ponds, a walled garden and specimen trees have been incorporated into the scheme to create a truly special environment.”

“The architecture of the 14 luxurious four and five-bedroom homes at Somerford Square follows the local vernacular, and reflects Cheshire’s rich farming heritage. Styled on local agricultural courtyards, each home is constructed from the finest Cheshire brick, with natural slate roofs and timber detailing.”

Our Solution

Hardwoods Group worked closely with the developer and contractors associated with the project to manufacture and supply a stunning set of oak buildings. We paid close attention to the vision that the developer had for the estate to ensure the final oak garage design would integrate seamlessly with the surrounding architecture.

The striking quality and unmatched richness of the European oak and craftsmanship utilised in both oak-framed garages were a fitting complement to this amazing residential development project.

The images (which capture the timeless and natural look of oak) are taken four years after the installation and demonstrate how oak ages naturally in an open environment.
