In addition, the perfectly aligned wood cladding demonstrates attention to detail the fact that the materials are in different colours provides individuality to the houses.
Architects Hadfield-Noblin have ensured that luxurious fixtures and fittings are evident throughout the house to compliment the striking exteriors.
