An extraordinary build

Creating a truly amazing home

Project type
Everything is new – seven-bedroom house, two-bedroom annex with office and garage, golf studio, swimming pool and landscaping.

James and Fiona, plus four children and Lionel the dog.

The project in a nutshell
The transformation of an unmodernised 1930s detached house on a superb plot, into a stunning, contemporary, luxury home.

• Every inch of the house was designed between the client and Project Casa’s design team
• A stunning triple height, glazed entrance with supersize pivot front door in a ceramic finish is the centre piece of this clean rendered design.
• The feature glazing in the open plan kitchen includes a huge, Crittall style, super thin frame sliding door – frames so thin you can’t believe it’s a door!
• The focal point of the new landscape design is the stunning swimming pool and terrace with hot tub, outdoor kitchen and cleverly designed seating, dining areas and kids play areas.


More about the project

We met James and Fiona in 2020 and extended and renovated their previous property, also in Esher, during the depths of Covid – a very challenging Covid build with the young family confined to living through the building site due to lockdowns.

The transformation of the previous property was a great success, but not long after the project completing James contacted Dan at Project Casa to explain his plan to purchase a much larger property.

Dan went house hunting with James and Fiona and the new property was chosen for its amazing plot. Dan introduced the full spectrum of Project Casa’s design team – our architect, planning consultant, landscape designer, structural engineer, interior designer, glazing specialist, smart home consultant, kitchen designer, bathroom designer, flooring specialists – and the final design, spec and finishes were born.

Our construction team grabbed the bull by the horns and are in the process of completing this breathtaking new home, working closely with our design team. The layout of the new home and annex is tailored perfectly to the family of four, but also with a large extended family in mind. The first floor comprises five bedrooms and four bathrooms, with two further bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor. The annex delivers two further guest bedrooms and one bathroom.

The ground floor ticks every family home box – a grand entrance leading to a sweeping open plan kitchen/dining/family space. A large playroom connects to a separate kid’s garden on the far side of the plot, with utility, boot room, ground floor bathroom and separate WC making up other key practical spaces. An adult’s formal living room and Fiona’s study make up the rest of the ground floor. The annex houses James’ study on the ground floor – an escape from the family chaos (James’ words)!

The incredible site enabled our landscape designer to create a truly amazing garden. The terrace connecting to the kitchen/open plan space delivers clearly zoned outdoor seating, dining and cooking areas, with the kids outdoor play space tucked away just behind. The centre piece of the landscape design is the stunning swimming pool, surrounded by the precision laid porcelain tiling, creating a sun deck and entertaining space any luxury home would be proud of. The grounds are completed by a golf studio and tennis court.

The project is currently under construction and due for final completion in January 2024.
